Dada (English pronunciation: /dɑ: dɑ/).
Name taken from a well know Movement called Dadaism.
Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in Zurich ,Switzerland during World War 1 and peaked from 1916 to 1922. Its purpose was to ridicule what its participants considered to be the meaninglessness of the modern world. In addition to being anti-war, dada was also anti-bourgeois and anarchist in nature.
Dada (Dadaism) is the groundwork to abstract art and sound poetry, a starting point for performance art, a prelude to postmodernism, an influence on pop art, a celebration of antiart to be later embraced for anarcho-political uses in the 1960s and the movement that lay the foundation for Surrealism.—Marc Lowenthal
