    One thought on “The DADA Reader: A Critical Anthology”

    1. This is a mixed bag of a book. First, this is a pretty significant collection for people interested in the history of international avant-garde art. The selection is international in scope (not just focused on Tristan Tzara and those who followed him, but also on Francis Picabia, Louis Aragon, and others, including Dada in the United States). It does a very impressive job of demonstrating that Surrealism had its roots in Dada, and also in exploring the intersections between other movements and D [...]

    2. If you are remotely interested in Dada, but aren't able to read Dada publications in their original language, you should acquire this book. It is the quintessential compilation of primary Dada texts in the English language. Listen to jazz while reading this shit. You'll thank me later.

    3. [Paperback edition] This work contains excerpts from Dadaist journals from the early 20th century, with short prefaces by Ades before each journal selection. The selections appear to have been chosen for their significance and relevance to the movement. To achieve some of the same effects which the Dadaists desired for their audience(surprise, curiosity, and shock to name a few), Ades uses photographs, scaled fascimiles, various typographical techniques, and other genuinely artistic methods. In [...]

    4. Fantastic! For anyone who is interested in the Dada movement, this is a must read. Of course it will not cover their pivotal writings nor works in other areas of the arts, but it is still a panoramic of the evolution of the movement. These periodicals were a very important aspect of Dada creation and deserve just as much attention when looking into the group as any of their other works. Far too often Dada is swept aside, considered as nothing more than a precursor to surrealism, but through thes [...]

    5. this is my next theatre project! to make this into a theatrical event- im just starting but its a collection of poems, rants, stream of conciousness writing, manifestos, and poems from the dada movement which sprung from the first world war in europe and lead to the surrealist movement. its pretty cool

    6. A tad repetitive. Dada is nonsensical, which is a bit difficult to explain, discuss, define, without resorting to nonsense, contradiction and general silliness. This can make reading a little difficult as there are gems in here, but a lot of over the top dross.

    7. That Dada seems just as relevant today - under our current political climate - as it was at the beginning of the 20th Century.
