Anonymous asked: I'm a bit confused why people got so outraged by your claim that Dada was "not art". Dada often tried to distance itself from that label and everything else. It was a thing of contradictions, as it's leader, Hugo Ball, once commented "Dada is anti-Dada". My impression was that your comment was parodying this idea, alluding to the attributes of the movement. People need to calm down a bit.
the dada artists themselves claimed that what they were doing wasn’t necessarily art, and strove for people to get enraged and upset at the anti-art movement that they started
people on tumblr are just really big fans of dada i guess
