  1. Zurich Dadadom DaDa Mobility in Zurich

  2. Sites & Spaces • Sites and spaces of Dada activity were numerous and varied. They included: • the private residences of Dadas and their friends • the public cafes, streets and tram cars of the city • the hills above and other places in and outside Zurich

  3. More Sites & Spaces • Postal correspondence of letters and published material was very important for the dissemination of Dada material out of Switzerland • Exchange among activists at a time when travel was restricted by the conditions of war was very important • Took place outside the "official" venues that were the rooms, buildings, and addresses used for Dada events • The venues have a particular significance because these were the distinct, chosen spatial arenas for collective and individual operation • They were the most important sites of transaction and confrontation between event and milieu, protagonists and their public

  4. Mobility of Dada • The Cabaret Voltaire at Spiegelgasse 1. It operated for five months from 5 February until early July 1916 • 14 July 1916: The first Dada soiree was held at the Zunfthaus (guildhouse) zur Waag • January, 1917: the "First Dada Exhibition“-- works by Arp, Janco, Richter, the Van Reeses and others were exhibited & Tzara lectured on modern art in the Galerie Corray

  5. Mobility cont’d • March 1917, the Galerie Dada was opened on above premises; the rooms used were above the Sprungli confectioners and chocolate emporium--venue for exhibitions, lectures, and soirees; also fairly short‑lived, closing after about ten weeks • 23 July 1918, Tristan Tzara staged his own—by now the seventh—Dada Soiree in the Zunithaus zur Meise • 9 April 1919: The eighth, final, and biggest Dada Soiree in Zurich was held on, at the Kaufleutensaal (Pelikanstr. 18)
