Kunsthaus Zürich

Collection dadaism

In all areas of the collection of the Kunsthaus Zurich there are many Dadaist works: in the collection of paintings and sculptures, the collection of prints and drawings, the photo collection and in the library.

The collection Dadaism in the library contains books, magazines, leaflets, posters, manuscripts and photographs.

All titles of the collection are cataloged in the library's online catalogue and can be found there. In the catalog «Dada global» ", most of the objects are fully described and annotated. Since the works of the collection Dadaism have been shown in many exhibitions around the world, they are also published in the corresponding exhibition catalogs.

The library collects the research literature on Dadaism as fully as possible.

Because of the poor paper quality many originals of the collection Dadaism are very fragile. Therefore the use of these objects is restricted and in some critical cases no longer possible.

To mark 100 years of the Dada movement, all the documents and works on paper are being digitized, and in some cases restored, to make them accessible to a global audience.
