Helmut Herbst – Germany – DADA: an Alphabet of German Dadaism

Published on 6 mei 2012

From the back of the box:

In post World War I Zurich, out of the conflict’s sobering aftermath, there was born an artistic movement that preached a baffling, radical yet whimsical philosophy of creativity. Random and meaningless by definition, calculatedly irrational by design, the movement spread like revolt to America and across EUrope, voicing the delightfully bizarre protest of a brave new community of artists and writers.

Filmed with the cooperation of original DADAists Hans Richter and Richard Hülsenbeck, this unique motion picture collage of art, music and poetry is not only an alphabet of German DADAism, but is in itself, a true DADAist experience.
