dada /ˈdɑːdɑː/ or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. Many claim Dada began in Zurich, Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter but the height of New York Dada was the year before, in 1915. To quote Dona Budd's The Language of Art Knowledge,
Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. This international movement was begun by a group of artists and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara's and Marcel Janco's frequent use of the words "da, da," meaning "yes, yes" in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name "Dada" came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to 'dada', a French word for 'hobbyhorse'.
The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature, poetry, art manifestoes, art theory, theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. In addition to being anti-war, Dada was also anti-bourgeois and had political affinities with the radical left.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENEDICT! (July 19)
We and Martin adore you and think you’re great ❤❤❤
I literally started a fight wih my
mom two days ago and said some nasty things because she was being a dick to my sister. so now she’s not talking to me.
and just now I was talking to my sister and she started bitching at me for no reason whatsoever.
why do I even bother doing anything nice to anyone? I should have just stayed quite while your mom insulted you until you cried because why bother standing up for someone who’s not gonna remember the good things you did for them.
so in conclusion no one is talking to me in this house. how fucking stupid is it that they’re sitting together right now in the living room and I’m sitting here in my room crying and originally the problem was between the two of them and had nothing to do with me.
