Painting , poetry , performance , fashion , theatre , film . manifesto . philosophy , advertising , typography : DADA did the lot . It had to . It rejected the lot . The European cultures that produced The War To End All Wars . You got it , we don’t want it . No distinctions . No pity.
The DADISTS weren’t just armchair critics , many had front line experience , or experienced the front line pass through murderously .
From Zurich in 1916 DADA went to Berlin , Hanover , Cologne & New York . While in Paris it morphed into Surrealism .
