Russian Dada 1914-1924 (2018) [EN, ES]

20 August 2019, dusan

“This exhibition explores Russian avant-garde art through the perspective of the Anti-art canons associated with the international Dada movement.

The selected works reveal the intentions of many artists to take part in projects of public unrest with connotations in close proximity to Marxism and to adopt rejection, irony, the absurd and chance as the basic principles underpinning their artistic manifestations.”

With essays by Margarita Tupitsyn, Victor Tupitsyn, Olga Burenina-Petrova, and Natasha Kurchanova.

Rudolf E. Kuenzli (ed.): Dada and Surrealist Film (1987)

15 November 2017, dusan

“This collection of thirteen original essays analyzes connections between film and two highly influential twentieth-century movements. The essays, which comment on specific films and deal with theoretical and topical questions, are framed by a documentary section that includes a photographic reproduction of the manuscript scenario for Robert Desnos’s and Man Ray’s L’Etoile de mer, and an introduction by the editor that provides a cogent working model for the difference between Dada and Surrealist perspectives.” (back cover)
