The DADA movement started in Zurich Switzerland in 1916 towards the end of World War I. Hugo Ball established a musical theatre called “cabaret voitaire”, this attracted other artists who had moved to avoid the war.
Dadaists rejected the old artistic structures and set out to shock and outrage their audiences , the artwork set out to shock more than any previous art movement. Dada rejected established institutions and expressed their beliefs through different forms, from performance art to poetry, graphic designs, sculpture and collage.
They introduced new techniques and materials and showed subjects that reflected change in modern life. The most radical of their techniques were seen as avant- garde.
“How is one to define, let alone confine a movement which cannot be identified with any one personality or place, viewpoint or subject, which affects all the arts, which has a continually shifting focus and is more over intentionally negative, ephemeral, illogical and inconclusive ?”
The Dadaists were angry with Europe and society for allowing World War I to occur. The group was formed to go against this and groups of people who they felt contributed to the war.
Artistic influences came from Abstract Art, Expressionism, Cubism and to a lesser extent, Futurism.
