Dada and dance, a lecture by historian of ideas and dance writer Britt-Marie Styrke in conjunction to the exhibition Dada is Dada. She will focus on the female dance artists in the avant-garde of the early 20th century and among the circle of Dadaists. With distorted bodies and provocative movements, they shaped their idea of an anti-art and the dissolution of obsolete ideals.
This lecture is part of the programme in conjunction to the exhibition Dada is Dada, with works from one of the most influential art movements of the 20th century. Dada began in 1916 in Zurich as a reaction to the conservative values of bourgeois society and conventional aesthetic ideals, to nationalism, and to the on-going First World War. In just a few years, the movement spread across the world. The exhibition is produced by Bildmuseet with loans from private collectors in Europe.
