Join this celebration of the 100th anniversary of one of the key birth places of Dada. Talks, multi-media, performance. Re:DADA/Remix--artists exploring new technology to re-work and discover DADA works in the Public Domain. This exhibition premieres at Cabaret Voltaire in April 2016 and is part of a larger evening to celebrate Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, the birthplace of DADA 100 years ago.
To celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Dada movement, born at the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, swissnex San Francisco collaborates with partners Doc18 and Kunsthaus Zurich to present the exhibit, website and performances of Re: Dada. Dada’s historic tactics to remix, collage, share, and deconstruct reveal a democratic idea of art that still drives internet, DIY, open source and ‘remix culture’ today. Since many Dada art works are now in the public domain, Doc18 has built an online platform to invite artists, writers and makers to ‘remix’ the digital images, words, sounds and actions. Through the transformation of public Dada art works using 21st century tools and concepts, Re:Dada fosters an exchange between Swiss and US artists. Some artists included in the exhibition: Anna Cholinska, Tom Comitta, Sofia Cordova, Paul Dorn, Jenny O’Dell, Bruno Schlatter and more TBA
