the zoo of art

DADA remains within the framework of European weaknesses, it's still shit, but from now on we want to shit in different colours so as to adorn the zoo of art with all the flags of all the consulates.
We are circus ringmasters and we can be found whistling amongst the winds of fairgrounds, in conventions, prostitutions, theatres, realities, feelings, restaurants, ohoho, bang bang.

TRISTAN TZARA, from 'Monsieur Antipyrine's Manifesto', 1916

I've always adored the dada movement. I think it actually is the postmodern strike in it that attracts me, it still feels very contemporary to me. :=
