DOCUMENTING DADA / DISSEMINATING DADA is an exhibition featuring items from the University of Iowa Libraries’ International Dada Archive, the world’s most comprehensive collection of material related to the Dada movement.

A brief and potent burst of activity from 1916 through 1923, Dada was more than a mere art movement claiming a broader role as an agent of cultural, social, and political change. Its proponents wanted to affect all aspects of Western civilization, to take part in the revolutionary changes unfolding as inevitable results of the chaos of World War I.
