What is Dada? Dada is elusive, paradoxical, absurd, surrounded by myths and hilarious stories.
The  great influence of Dada: both the CoBrA movement as Provo may call  himself heir to Dada, and Surrealism, the Situationists, Fluxus, Pop  Art, Monty Python's Flying Circus and the punk movement - Dada has  produced many children ...
Dada  is the absurd answer to the absurdity of war, a biting satire on the  complacency of the bourgeoisie, a distorting mirror in which the  laughable "rationality" of "civilization" is mirrored and then assuming  the form of a Medusa who with her look of terror petrifies spectators.  Dada is, in short, the jester with jokes but in a bitter and desperate  mood true a culture that scourges itself in lies and false pretence..
Dada or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century.
