Dadaglobe
Reconstructed

5 February – 1 May 2016

‘Dadaglobe’ brings together the more than two hundred artworks and texts that were sent to Tristan Tzara in 1921 by artists from all over Europe. This epochal but hitherto unpublished book project is finally being realized to mark the 100th anniversary of Dada’s foundation. After years of research, contributions that have since been dispersed around the globe have been assembled once again for an exhibition that is a milestone in recent Dada research. The presentation comprises self-portraits, photomontages and collages, drawings, book page designs, poems and essays as well as manuscripts, printed matter and revealing historical documents. ‘Dadaglobe’ is an impressive survey of the artistic diversity, socio-political relevance and art-historical impact of Dada. With contributions by Hans Arp, André Breton, Max Ernst, Hannah Höch, Sophie Taeuber-Arp and some 30 other artists.
The exhibition will be shown at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, from June 2016.

the Ernst Göhner Foundation and
