Dada: The Collections of The Museum of Modern Art is the first publication devoted exclusively to MoMAs unrivalled collection of Dada works. Beginning with a core group acquired on the occasion of the landmark Fantastic Art, Dada and Surrealism exhibition of 1936, enriched in 1953 by a bequest selected by Marcel Duchamp, and steadily augmented over the years, the Museums Dada collection presents the movement in its full international and interdisciplinary scope during its defining years, from 1916 through 1924. Catalyzed by the major Dada exhibition that appeared in Paris, Washington, D.C., and at The Museum of Modern Art in 20056, the book benefits from the latest scholarly thinking, not only as found in the exhibitions catalogues but also in the critical responses to them, as well as in an ambitious series of seminars organized around the show. Featuring generously illustrated essays that focus on a selection of the Museums most important Dada works, this publication highlights works in many media, including books, journals, assemblages, collages, drawings, films, paintings, photographs, photomontages, prints, readymades and reliefs. It also includes a comprehensive catalogue of the Museums Dada holdings, including those in the Museums Archives and Library. Edited by Anne Umland and Adrian Sudhalter, members of the Museums Department of Painting and Sculpture, this book inaugurates an ambitious new series of scholarly catalogues on the Museums collection.T!
