Dada Art Prints

The Dada Art Movement, or Dadaism, is believed to have begun in Switzerland around 1915-1916 in reaction to the outbreak of WWI. This loosely-banded group of writers and artists actively protested against the war and the principles they felt were responsible, such as: nationalism, materialism, rationalism and, most importantly, traditionalism. These were "non-artists" in the process of creating "non-art." Dada artists delighted in creating a Dadaism art that was both whimsical and nonsensical, designed to create outrage or shock among viewers. The only rule was to follow none of the traditional rules. There was no one particularly predominant medium used in Dadaism.

Some of the principle figures of the international "non-movement" included Jean Arp, Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia, among others. Many participants were influenced by Expressionism and Abstraction. Dada, in turn, was a forebear of Surrealism. Some fine examples of Dada prints and Dada Surrealism Art are available here.
