From the publisher:
 
“‘Where and how Dada began is almost as difficult to determine at Homer’s birthplace,’ writes Hans Richter, the artist and filmmaker closely associated with this radical movement from its earliest days. Here he records and traces Dada’s history, from its inception in wartime Zurich to its collapse in Paris in the 1920s, when many of its members were to join the Surrealist movement, to its reappearance in the 1960s in movements such as Pop Art. This absorbing eyewitness narrative is enlivened by extensive use of Dada documents, illustrations, and texts by fellow Dadaists. The complex personalities, relationships, and contributions of, among others, Hugo Ball, Tristan Tzara, Picabia, Arp, Schwitters, Hausmann, Duchamp, Ernst, and Man Ray, are vividly brought to life.”

In a career spanning six decades, Hans Richter was associated with some of the most radical art movements of the 20th century, from Die Aktion, a small association of German Expressionists, to Dada, and the Association of Revolutionary Artists, a group he co-founded. Richter interpreted the spirit of the anti-art Dada movement as a means to strike a revolutionary balance between order and chaos, to “bring forward a new kind of human being.” He viewed abstract art as a universal language and a means to this goal, and in the early 1920s created some of the earliest abstract films.
