Palacký University, Lecture: "Dada Divas: Then and Now"

  • Palacky University

“Dada Divas: Then and Now” discusses the creative works, ideas, and lives of important female artists who were among the originators of the Dada movement: Emmy Hennings, Mina Loy, Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, and others. The lecture illuminates historical and artistic contributions by women who have been overshadowed by their male counterparts, discusses some remarkable similarities in these artists’ lives, and comments on such larger issues as the status of women, emigrée life, war, and other concerns that are as relevant today as they were a hundred years ago.

“Dada Divas: A 100-Year Odyssey” discusses the creative works, ideas, and lives of important female artists such as Emmy Hennings, Mina Loy, and Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, who were among the originators of the Dada movement. The lecture also traces how the music of Dada Divas—whose preview performance will be at the Orli Theater in Brno later this week—is developed from various aspects of these artists' lives and artistic movements with which they were associated, and how it relates their era to ours by incorporating such contemporary practices as noise, sound art, experimental music, and performance art.
