---Walter Benjamin recognized the importance of Dada when he wrote in 'The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction' that when authenticity ceases to be an important part of making art, "the total function of art is reversed. Instead of being based on ritual it begins to be based on another practice, politics." ---Image:http://www.johnvalentino.com/Teaching/Art190/Projects/190Proj2/Dada.html
El Dadaísmo se caracterizó por rebelarse en contra del positivismo, las convenciones literarias y artísticas, por burlarse del artista burgués y de su arte. Su actividad se extiende desde la poesía a la escultura pasando por la pintura o la música. Poster for Salon Dada Exposition Internationale, 1921.
