Dada is a nonsensical, meaningless term, it
was adopted as the official title of the art
movement. It was meant as a statement
against the meaninglessness of progress
and human rationality.

These artists were responding to the
meaninglessness of World War l where
millions were injured or killed.

They questioned „reason‟ and „the
establishment‟, they celebrated serious
AbSUrDITY.
