ViVa DADA ˈ20
Internationale DADAMesseDO

21 February  – 6 March 2020

Opening on Friday 21 February at 8:20 p.m.


The DADAists declared war on the established art forms, bourgeois and political culture. Noise music, simultaneous lectures, random poems, photomontages, collages and common everyday objects were among their means of expression.
Richard Huelsenbeck, one of the co-founders of DADAism, lived in Dortmund and is buried in the local South Cemetery.
For the 100th anniversary of DADAism in 2016, some Dortmund-based artists decided to revive this source of DADA now in Dortmund. In the exhibition ViVa DADA ˈ20 the DADADOists present their own formats and recall in readings, performances and spatial adaptations the 1st International DADA Fair 1920 in Berlin but also Richard Huelsenbeck and the writer Jürgen Kalle Wiersch.
