Item description for Dada Seminars, The (Casva Seminar Papers) by Leah Dickerman & Matthew S. Witkovsky...

This volume of 12 essays fills a broad gap in modernist art history. Taken together, these case studies on artists and concepts present Dada as a coherent movement with a set of operating principles. Among the " tactics" elaborated are the hyperbolic mimicry of dominant social and linguistic conventions, the performance of gender and other aspects of identity, the usurpation of the modes of a new media culture and marketplace, and the recycling of history and memory as blasted in a world traumatized by war.The Dada Seminars developed out of a series of seminars held by the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art, in advance of a major traveling exhibition of international Dada that will open in 2005. Contributors include George Baker, T.J. Demos, Leah Dickerman, Uwe Fleckner, Hal Foster, Amelia Jones, David Joselit, Marcella Lista, Helen Molesworth, Arnauld Pierre, Jeffrey T. Schnapp, and Matthew S. Witkovsky.

The Dada Seminars is Good  Jan 10, 2007
A great overview of a very powerful and inspiring movment in art. An art era long forgotten, yet one of a kind in its ground breaking reaches. The Dada Seminars begins to touch on these sort of fleating happenings the artists that made them happen and the results of their labors. The book picks at every facet of this movement in a very academic scholarly way. A rather great indeapth read sheading more light on this time past.
