From the Back Cover
'One of the best and most consistently interesting documents on this extraordinary movement that has been published.' The Sunday Times
'A first-rate history, objective and sober.' The Times
'Hans Richter is the ideal chronicler.' The Guardian
'Where and how Dada began is almost as difficult to determine as Homer's birthplace,' writes Hans Richter, the artist and film-maker closely associated with this radical movement from its earliest days. Here he records and traces Dada's history, from its inception in wartime Zurich, to its collapse in Paris in the 1920's when many of its members were to join the Surrealist movement, to the present day when its spirit re-emerged in the 1960's in movements such as Pop Art. This absorbing eye witness narrative is enlivened by extensive use of Dada documents, illustrations and texts by fellow Dadaists. The complex personalities, relationships and contributions of, among others, Hugo Ball, Tristan Tzara, Picabia, Arp, Schwitters, Hausmann, Duchamp, Ernst and Man Ray, are vividly brought to life.
