The City on the Limmat Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Dada
Zurich is the birthplace of an international art and literary movement: on February 5, 1916, the Cabaret Voltaire opened at Spiegelgasse 1. It was here that Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Tristan Tzara, Richard Huelsenbeck, Marcel Janco and Hans Arp founded Dadaism – as a reaction to the horrors of the First World War, as a protest against society and its bourgeois ideals, and as a revolt against art. Today, 100 years later, Zurich is celebrating Dada. To commemorate the 165 most important Dada protagonists, various events are being held at the Cabaret Voltaire on 165 days of feast between February and July. Other institutions, including the National Museum and the Museum Rietberg, are also bringing Dada back to life with numerous exhibitions, theater projects, movies, performances, seminars and readings.
