Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"This handsome volume," said LJ's reviewer (4/1/52) presents "those pronouncements in art and literature which should have meaning still . . . ." Originally published in 1951, this is a paperback reprint of the second edition (1981) of one of the first books written in English dealing with Dada; it's still one of the best.-- MR

Review

The single most instructive book on Dada...[T]he items collected are readable, pungent, and representative. It is one of those "essential works" on twentieth-century art. (T. J. Clark)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dada not only wrote and painted, it talked, drank, agitated, danced, babbled, burbled, shocked, indulged in self-loathing, took notes, held exhibits, dressed up, hooted, wrote scathing criticisms of itself, whistled, made noises with its skin, fell in love with itself, mailed letters, and then committed suicide. Huelsenbeck, Tzara, Breton, Ball, Duchamp et al. enacted Dada selves out of hatred for war, but their hatred and iconoclasm continued when they discovered that the monster that lives off of war didn't die on Armistice Day (the one in 1918). They became anti-everything that was Modern, Reasonable, Commonsensical, Appropriate, in other words, everything that would help humans hide from (while justifying) their own self-destructiveness. They tried to open up the unconscious and display it for Europe and America. This book charts that process better than most. The best of the essays about Dada is "The Dada Spirit in Painting" by Georges Hugnet, but the best pieces here are by those who, in writing and painting, were being Dada: Eluard's and Huelsenback's poems, Ball's "Dada Fragments," Tzara's "Seven Dada Manifestoes," Ribemont-Dessaignes' "History of Dada," and Breton on Duchamp.

Format: Paperback
This is Motherwell's classic book on Dada. It was the only comprehensive look at Dada for along time. Good for an intro as well as a comprehensive coverage of the original Dada's and their works.
