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

  • Palacky University Olomouc Czech Republic (map)

“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.
