    Dada Powerpoint Dada Powerpoint Presentation Transcript

    • dada Ashley Howes
      • The dada movement began around 1915 and continued until about 1923. For many it was an anti-war (World War I) movement protesting traditional beliefs of art.
      • The artists were shocked by the war, and wanted to produce something shocking.
      • They wanted to be different and produce things that were different.
      • According to the artists, dada was not real art, it was anti-art – meant to be everything opposite of what art stood for
      • Dada was a movement in visual art, but also literature (mainly poetry), theatre, and graphic design.
      • The dada movement developed in European countries as well as in America – mostly in New York.
      • The art coming out of New York tended to be more whimsical and less about the violence that was happening in Europe.

      • French: “hobbyhorse”
      • German: “nothing at all”
      • A child’s nonsense word – meaningless babble
