100 + 1 years ago a group of artists got together at Zurich’s Cabaret Voltaire and formed a movement. Or they didn’t. Maybe they just got drunk and looked at the times in which they lived, post-World War I, which was godawful. Dadaism confronted the nightmare of reason with unreason—with nonsense, a trust in chance, and absurdist fashion. All this made for a helluva party. 100 + 1 years later, let’s do it again at our own Cabaret Voltaire! The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis invites you to the 2017 Dada Ball & Bash: an evening to stand out from the norm with inventive cocktails, fanciful dining, and eccentric entertainment.
