Dada was an art movement that developed in reaction to World War I, the Dada movement consisted of artists, writers, musicians and performers who rejected the logic, reason, and aestheticism of modern capitalist society. Their works, express the nonsense, irrationality and opposition to what was happening in society in general.
Hans Richter, the acknowledged father of Dada, stated that Dada was not art: it was “anti-art.” Dada represents the opposite of everything which art stands for.
Where art was concerned with traditional aesthetics, Dada ignored aesthetics. If art was to appeal to sensibilities, Dada is intended to offend.
