  2. Tristan Tzara (born Samuel or SamyRosenstock, a.ka. S. Samyro; April 16 1896, in Romania • Born into a Jewish family, his 1st language was probably Yiddish, his second Romanian, and his adopted language French. In fact the majority of his work was written in French. • Having been sent away to boarding school at 11, he actually started his writing career with the magazine Simbolul, under the direction of Adrian Maniu, when he was 16. • (PoemHunter.com) Dada 1, ed. Tristan Tzara (Zurich, July 1917), cover, and Dada 2, ed. Tristan Tzara (Zurich, December 1917), cover. (Hoffman)

  3. So Tzara was a major “president” in Dada, the movement to end all movements, in reaction to that War to end all wars, WWI or the Great War. • Avant-garde poet, essayist and performance artist. Also active as a journalist, playwright, literary and art critic, composer and film director (Hoffman) • So Tzara collaborated with other Romanian Jews — notably Marcel and Georges Janco to start the Dadaist movement. (Sanderson) Dada 3, ed. Tristan Tzara (Zurich, December 1918), cover. (Hoffman)

  4. During WWI, Tzara joined Marcel Janco in Switzerland at the Cabaret Voltaire and performed drama, recited his poetry and his Dadaist manifestos. • Though nobody knows where the term comes from, some say Dada “in French it means ‘hobby horse.’ In German it means ‘good-bye,’ ‘Get off my back,’ ‘Be seeing you sometime.’ In Romanian: ‘Yes, indeed, you are right, that's it.” (Spencer) Dada 3, ed. Tristan Tzara (Zurich, December 1918). (Hoffman)

  5. From Dada Manifesto Dadaist Disgust (KennethDouglas) Dada 4–5 (Anthologie Dada), ed. Tristan Tzara (Zurich, May 1919), cover. (Hoffman)

  6. In Zürich, Tzara met many writers and artist who would later found the Dadaist movement. Among these were Hugo Ball and his wife Emmy Hennings, who rented the Cabaret Voltaire, the venue for their performance art, Hans Arp, Arthur Segal, Otto van Rees, Max Oppenheimer, and Marcel Słodki. His old friend Marcel Janco also joined the troupe, as did writer and drummer Richard Huelsenbeck. • In Zürich, Tzara met many writers and artist who would later found the Dadaist movement.

(Gullette) • Though the movement began as a literary venue, it quickly moved to performance and visual arts movement. (Sayre) Der Dada 3, ed. Raoul Hausmann (Berlin, April 1920), cover. (Hoffman)

  7. Many authors, and artists from France, Germany, and Italy joined the movement. • Eventually, artists from the United States joined the fray. (Hartt) 391 2, ed. Francis Picabia (Barcelona, February 10, 1917), cover. (Hoffman)

  8. From France, it was Marcel Duchamp who led the movement with his outrageous paintings and sculptures. ← In this painting, Marcel Duchamp integrates the Cubist to the Futurists in a brave Dadaist way. The Blind Man 1, eds. Marcel Duchamp, Beatrice Wood, and Henri-Pierre Roché (New York, April 10, 1917), cover. (Hoffman) Marcel Duchamp: Nude Descending a Staircase 1912 (Swanson)

  9. → The photo to the left shows Duchamp’s readymade sculpture of a urinal, which he aptly called Fountain. (Hoffman) he Blind Man 2, eds. Marcel Duchamp, Beatrice Wood, and Henri-Pierre Roché (New York, May 1917), pp. 2–3. (Hoffman)

  10. IIn 1918, Francis Picabia, and Marcel Duchamp, from France, and Man Ray from the U.S., formed the Nihilist offshoot from Dada. • This movement was extreme Dada, Nihilism is “the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated. It is often associated with extreme pessimism and a radical skepticism that condemns existence. A true nihilist would believe in nothing, have no loyalties, and no purpose other than, perhaps, an impulse to destroy.” (Pratt) Neozubair.worldpress.com www.niilists.net

  11. Dada in Paris, 1920 With: Louis Aragon, Breton, and Ribemont-Dessaignes, Arp and Tzara from Zurich, Man Ray and Picabia from New York, and Max Ernst from Cologne. (Sayre) , (Hoffman) & (ArtHistory.net) Dada 6 (Bulletin Dada), ed. Tristan Tzara (Paris, February 1920), cover. (Hoffman)

  12. Dadaism eventually evolved into Surrealism. André Breton led the charge and change to surrealism. (Hoffman) but second sourced fro Breton’s Manifeste du surrealisme Minotaure 10, ed. Albert Skira (Paris, Winter 1937), cover (Hofman).

  13. Though the Surrealist movement began as a literary genre, it too quickly evolved into a visual art movement. • To name a few: André Breton, Salvador Dalí,Giorgio de Chirico, Robert Desnos, Marcel Duchamp, and Michel Leiris. • We should also add the Ultraistaslike Jorge Luis Borges. (Hoffman), (Pratt) & (Spenser) La Révolution surréaliste 12, ed. André Breton (Paris, December 15, 1929), cover. (Hoffman)

  14. I wrote this tribute to Dalí and his expressed philosophy of Gastro Esthetic Cannibalism when I was 18: To Dalí or “Gastro Aesthetic Cannibalism” Munching on fingers, I assimilate, osmosize sculpture art; grace metaphors. Those moths—not butterflies in stomach, feed on each other, death-head victor, rends gastric-walls in carnivore –jaws. Lust tastes, wants and screams insatiably –more! more! That wind, of hate, hungers for our warmth, gnaws at corners of cloth-skins, and sins. Beauty-day consumes beast-ugly-night, and moon that sun and we that son of God? Tears and rivers erode -bits of wealth- from Earth and brow; (both being faces and planets) leaving—only rotting fearsome stench and time. Life in lark exaltation, death in black-raven shriek -”cosmic orality”- consuming all. (Salvidordalipaintings.blogspot.com) My favorite surrealist artist is Salvador Dalí and this painting is called The Persistence of Memory

  15. . Poems from Borges Lluvia Bruscamente la tarde se ha aclaradoPorque ya cae la lluvia minuciosa.Cae o cayó. La lluviaesunacosaQue sin dudasucede en el pasado.Quien la oyecaer ha recobradoEl tiempo en que la suerteventurosaLe revelóunaflorllamadarosaY el curioso color del colorado.Estalluviaqueciega los cristalesAlegrará en perdidosarrabalesLas negrasuvas de unaparra en ciertoPatio queya no existe. La mojadaTarde me trae la voz, la vozdeseada,De mi padre quevuelve y que no ha muerto. (A. Z. Forman) RainThe afternoon has brightened up at lastFor rain is falling, sudden and minute.Falling or fallen. There is no dispute:Rain is a thing that happens in the past.Who hears it fall retrieves a time that fledWhen an uncanny windfall could discloseTo him a flower by the name of roseAnd the perplexing redness of its red. Falling until it blinds each windowpaneOut in a lost suburbia this rainShall liven black grapes on a vine insideA certain patio that is no more.A longed-awaited voice through the downpourIs from my father. He has neverdied. . (A. Z. Forman)
