‘DADA Art shouts anti-art. That is the essence of the art moment that started in he early 20th Century from the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dadaism was a form of artistic anarchy born out of disgust for the social, political and cultural values of the time. It embraced elements of art, music, poetry, theatre, dance and politics.
Our take away from DADAISM is that the greatness or beauty of an art object lies not in its intricateness but in the power of its idea, its expression and the message it convey. In this month, we will mystify and demystify DADAISM and also provide for experiential DADA activities to intrigue and inspire. We will also discuss the DADA roots of creative rebellion and establish linkages between creative rebellion and the contemporary start-up culture. We want you to breathe DADAism, to be fascinated with ideas and with collating ideas into a whole.’
