Dadaism was born in Germany and in Switzerland during the First World War and then it was taken to Paris.

It wasn’t an artistic movement as such, it was an attitude that expressed despair and disgust. They fought against the established order, characterized by a greedy society longing for power.  Dadaists tried to end up with any concept of art, literature or poetry from the past. They supported a new ideology, a new way of living.

Dadaists experienced different styles. Their works would be later developed by the Surrealist Movement. Some important painters were Johannes Theodor Baargeld and Hans Richter.
