Dada (/ˈdɑːdɑː/) or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. Dada in Zurich, Switzerland, began in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter, but the height of New York, Dada was the year before, in 1915.
The term anti-art, a precursor to Dada, was coined by Marcel Duchamp around 1913 when he created his first readymades.
Dada, in addition to being anti-war, had political affinities with the radical left and was also anti-bourgeois.
Dada the restaurant opened in Delray in the year 2000 in one of the oldest historic homes the Tarrimore house circa 1924 listed as a historic site in Delray Beach. The eclectic interior and revolving artwork compliment the creative cuisine, which is sustainably sourced. As the artist of the Movement we have strived to create an environment that is original, unique and forces us to step outside the box. Dada is non-conformist. It allows our food, atmosphere and staff artistic license, so to speak, to explore beyond the normal convention
“An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.” ― Man Ray
