Lecture Summary 10/15

This is all that my mind could think about! We did talk about how the the Dada movement was created in Zurich the year of 1916.
Dada was a way for artists to express themselves towards the war through artwork.
Some of the contributions were:
-assemblage, construction
-conceptual art

DADA became so important because it challenged people's expectation of art. There was laughter and anger enforced in the different works of art. A few great artists were:
-Jean Arp
-Hugo Ball
-Kurt Schwitters
-Mariel Duchamp

Overall, it was a very interesting lecture. You can see how surrealism came about after the DADA movement.
