“Alles is dada. Slechts de dadaïsten zijn niet dada. Wanneer immers de dadaïsten dadaïsten waren, dan zouden de dadaïsten geen dadaïsten zijn"

‘Dada’, Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant, 1923

Hugo Ball, founder of the DaDa movement, wrote already in 1916: 'men have been confused with machines'. Anarchist Dadaism flourished as an international art movement a century ago and emerged as a cynical response to the WWI. Anti-art, coincidence, freedom and absurdity played a major role in their work.
