9783836505628: Dadaism (Taschen Basic Art Series)

Anti-meaning: Absurdity against the establishment   Emerging amid the brutality of World War I, the revolutionary Dada movement took disgust with the establishment as its starting point. From 1916 until the mid 1920s, artists in Zurich, Cologne, Hanover, Paris, and New York posed a radical assault against the politics, social values, and cultural conformity which they regarded as complicit in the devastation of conflict.

Dada artists shared no distinct style but rather a common wish to upturn societal structures as much as artistic standards and to replace logic and reason with the absurd, chaotic, and unpredictable. Their practice encompassed experimental theater, games, guttural sound-making, collage, photomontage, chance-based procedures and the “readymade”, most notoriously Marcel Duchamp's urinal, Fountain (1917). Throughout, the Dadaists considered the visual appearance of their work secondary to the ideas and critiques it expressed. In this sense, Dada may be seen as a fundamental precursor to conceptual art.

With a selection of key works from some of the most famous proponents of Dada such as Tristan Tzara, Marcel Duchamp, Hannah Höch, Kurt Schwitters, Francis Picabia, and Man Ray, this book introduces this urgent, subversive, and determined twentieth century movement and its lasting influence on modern art.   About the Series:
Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Genre series features:

  • a detailed illustrated introduction plus a timeline of the most important political, cultural and social events that took place during that period
  • a selection of the most important works of the epoch, each of which is presented on a 2-page spread with a full-page image and with an interpretation of the respective work, plus a portrait and brief biography of the artist
  • approximately 100 colour illustrations with explanatory captions
