Seven Dada Manifestos and Lampisteries

Author(s): Tristan Tzara; Barbara Wright (Translator)

art theory

This volume contains Tristan Tzara 's famous manifestos, which first appeared between 1916 and 1921 and became essential texts of the modern movement and models for Breton 's Surrealist manifestos. Art for Tzara was both deadly serious and a game, and the playfulness of his character is apparent not only in his polemic, which often uses dadaist typography, but in the delightful drawings contributed by Francis Picabia.
In addition, this volume also contains Tzara 's Lampisteries articles that throw light on various art forms contemporary with his own work, at a time when art, weary of the old certainties, turned into subjective and often abstract forms, favouring the reality of the mind over that of the senses.
