A movement in art started in 1914 during World War 1 where artists displayed their disgust at the propaganda being spread and how the public accepted and promted it. They displayed this disgust through disturbing images, or images that dispict no definite object. Different media maybe also be used to shock the viewer.
Dadaism shocked many and stimulated the viewer to reading the artists statement(often politcal) in their work.

Dadaism is an artistic /satirical movement in modern art that started around the early 70s when the great Dada was born. Its purpose was to ridicule the meaninglessness of the modern world. These are sayings that are uttered by a Dada. At first glance a Dadaism makes absolutely no sense, the reader has to pore over hundreds of pages of research to make any sense out of it - these are pearls of wisdom that masquerade as a joke. One has to immerse him/herself in the Dada doctrine to be able to make any sense of a Dadaism.
