Happy Birthday Dada!

July 10, 2016 at 5:56 pm (Uncategorized)

Actually, Thursday July 14 is the centenary of the reading of the Dada Manifesto by Hugo Ball. The birthday of Dada? Who knows, and any way, it seems unlikely that the Dadaists would have wanted a party (or maybe they would).

Today’s New York Times has this piece on it

But, you might also have a thumb through Greil Marcus’ Lipstick Traces or just watch this Talking Heads video for “I Zimbra”with lyrics by Hugo Ball.
