Dada Day

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first ever dada event, Room 13 invited Art & History classes and curious members of the public to stretch their imaginations in a dada and surrealist manner.

The event featured film screenings, sound installations, and visual displays representing the spirit and history of dadaism. Participants were encouraged to try out a variety of art techniques popular with the dada artists: Poem recipes, photomontage, experimental film-making and Room 13 artworks in the Toilet Gallery.
