Dada Africa, Non-Western Sources and Influences
Dada (also known as Dadaism) is an art movement that first emerged in Zurich, Switzerland, just after the outbreak of World War I. It was led by artists who rejected and fought against the rationality and aestheticism of the capitalist society, and was quickly developed to become popular in other grand cities like Berlin, New York, and Paris.
From October 18, 2017, until February 19, 2018, the Musée de l’Orangerie, invites you to attend a new exhibition displaying various works illustrating the main causes supported by Dadaist artists and expressing their protest against all forms of discrimination and violence.
Among the big names of Dadaists whose works are showcased on the occasion of this exhibition, there are Hanna Höch, Jean Arp, Sophie, Taueber-Arp, Tristan Tzara, Marcel Janco, Hugo Ball, Raoul Haussmann, Man Ray and Picabia.
The museum also gives visitors the chance to discover magnificent pieces created by contemporary artists like Otobong Nkanga and Athi-Patra Ruga.
