That Dada Design

ANTI-ART, ANTI-BORGEOIS AND ANTI-WAR, the Dada movement that begun in Zurich and peaked in the early 1920's was a passionate breakthrough in art, literature, theater and design that would later influence avant-garde, pop art and even punk rock as we know them today.

Both at many points criticized and celebrated, Dadaism or Dada produced a well of interesting, intriguing and irreverent works believed to be a precursor to postmodernism.

And while I'm not particularly fond of vintage cross-dress portraits or inverted urinals on display, I find a certain appeal in print material from the era. They are artworks on their own.
