 Dada was born in Zurich's Cabaret Voltaire the 5.9.1916. World War I was raging, with tenthousands of dead a month, but people called "dada" crazy and not the generals.

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in neutral Z├╝rich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1920. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature (poetry, art manifestoes, art theory), theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti war politic through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals. Passionate coverage of art, politics, and culture filled their publications. The movement influenced later styles, movements, and groups including Surrealism, Pop Art, and Fluxus.
