Last year mark the centenary of the DADA movement, the anti-war avant-garde art movement. Worldwide, artists have been paying homage to this important art movement, through different exhibitions, performances, installations, educational and interactive events. However, female artists, who were extremely important and who played the significant role in the DADA movement, were severely underrepresented in these celebrations as well as in the DADA movement in general.
Dadaism was created in the wake of the WWI out of the need of artists to oppose war and violence. This critical mass of creative people founded explosive movement that was opposing the structure of society then. As an art movement, Dadaism is specially communicating with us today, where we see so many similarities with that time: conflicts around the world, migrant crisis, horrifying poverty. In political climate today, artists need to find the ways of creative engagement that would oppose the systems of violence such as misogyny, wars, and the terror of profit. The only program of Dadaism was that there was no program and that courageous statement gave the power to the movement that spread in all directions, liberated from aesthetic and social limitations. On the other hand, it was possible that refusal of Dadaism to have any program led exactly to the fact that Dadaism never faced the questions such as patriarchy.
Women artists of Dadaism created along with their male colleagues and for the first time they established certain art concepts.
It is necessary to search for different interpretations that will give a more comprehensive idea of Dadaism. This search would provide an insight into the movement based on a more accurate history that honours the role and contribution of female artists, as well.Ticket price is 600 RSD and can be purchased at the Museum of Contemporary Art on day of the performance from 6 p.m. Tickets can be booked via e-mail email@example.com.
