What kind of artists put a mustache on the Mona
Lisa? Enter a urinal in an art competition? Declare
their own independent republic? Hijack a ship?
Dadas! With Dada, many of the artists declared
their own “Pope” and continued their journey (with
no destination) into Surrealism, creating some
of the most imaginative and intense works of art
of the 20th Century. In Dada & Surrealism For
Beginners, you’ll get a colorful overview of these
two movements, and develop a sense of the
turbulent, wild, and unapologetically mad mood
and tone of the Dada and Surrealist movements.
