Essays in this volume examine the social, psychological and political atmosphere that made Zurich the center for revolutionary changes in Europe and around the world. Essayists discuss the "Happenings" and "performances" within aesthetic, sociopolitical and anthropological contexts. Other topics covered include Dada's laughter, the establishment and development of Cabaret Voltaire, the exhibition and events at the Galerie Dada and the periodicals that emerged from the Zurich Dada movement.
"This is a world premiere in the field of scholarly publishing; an exhaustive compilation in an encyclopedic format of all that this artistic, literary, political, sociological and philosophic movement has covered... To my knowledge, no project of such magnitude has ever been attempted anywhere."
-- Michel Sanouillet, Dean Emeritus, University of Nice, France; founder and first president of the International Association for the Study of Dada and Surrealism (November 2002)
