Masaryk University, Lecture: "Dada Divas: A 100-Year Odyssey"

  • Masaryk University Brno Czech Republic (map)

“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.
