Dada was a movement flourishing around 1915 – 1925, originally in Europe, then America. Dada ridiculed traditional notions of form and beauty, abandoning traditional media such as painting and sculpture in favour of techniques like collage, photomontage and readymades. Chance was credited with a valid role in the act of creating. Dada was influential, inspiring many anti-art movements throughout the 20th century. Dada was not united by a common style, rather a rejection of conventions in art and thought, seeking through unorthodox techniques, performances and provocations to shock society into self-awareness. The name Dada demonstrates the movement’s anti-rationalism.
