In a re-evaluation of the scholarly knowledge about Dada and its legacy, this publication reconstructs how the movement was (re)invented in the 1950s and '60s, especially by the Dada protagonists themselves. It also asks to what extent Dada's impulses are still relevant in terms of current aesthetic, literary, and cultural analyses today. Dada has existed for more than a century, but what does it mean to come back to Dada? The four volumes in this collection offer answers and explore how Dada has written itself into our cultural history. This publication follows the eponymous international symposium at Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich, organised by Agathe Mareuge and Sandro Zanetti in 2016.
