Despite the short life of the Dada movement, it has provoked the interest of art historians, museum directors and literary critics from all over the world. The present volume comprises the literary texts of individual Dadaists and periodicals from all Dada centers as well as books, articles, exhibition catalogs and bibliographies by international scholars.

Jörgen Schäfer's Exquisite Dada is the most exhaustive bibliography on Dada that has ever been compiled so far. By giving a synopsis of some decades of scholarly research, it provides an indispensable source for further studies on the matter.


"This highly praised essay series attempts a reevaluation of the Dada movement by applying recent scholarship to well recorded events. The series is organized according to geographical locales, but the volumes are uneven in quality and usefulness...Because of its outstanding collections of illustrations and its overview of the intellectual scene in this most central of cities, volume 6 in this series provides a service to the scholarly community, particularly lower and upper division undergraduates, and to general readers." -- Choice (March 2002)
