Dadaism, an art "movement" that had its first incarnation between 1916 and 1922, represented a profound, passionate set of beliefs inspired by the Dadaists' disgust with World War I, with the exclusive, superficial world of high art, and with the hypocriticism of science and philosophy.

Despite the apparent incoherence and repulsiveness of much Dada art, Dadaism has left an essential legacy for the music, film, literature, and art of today.

This is a pecha kucha presentation (20 slides x 20 seconds per slide) prepared for a design course at RPI.
