Section 2: Marvellous Juxtapositions

The use of “found” materials and objects in Dada and Surrealist collages, montages, and objects blurs the boundaries between art and life. Everyday items are incorporated and combined in surprising juxtapositions that seduce, shock, and disorient the viewer. This process of “relocation” brings out the poetic potential of the materials used to create dream-like objects that appear to have been “drawn from the strange depths of the unconscious mind.”
Dada exploited the rapid technological development of radio, cinema, manufacturing, and the illustrated press. The Dadaists were an international group that included artists as diverse as Kurt Schwitters, Hannah Höch, Max Ernst, Marcel Janco, Man Ray, and Marcel Duchamp, some of whom later joined the Surrealist movement. Dadaist strategies involved purchasing, editing, and arranging mechanically produced objects, images, and texts. Chance, humour and puns were among their chief creative devices.
Duchamp began his radically innovative work before the War, independently of the Dadaist movement. According to André Breton, Duchamp’s readymades foreshadowed Surrealist objects as the visual counterpart to the compelling poetic metaphors used in key texts of the movement: “as beautiful as the chance encounter between a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table.”
Surrealist collages and objects inspired subsequent generations of artists – such as Joseph Cornell, for instance – and have become part of contemporary artistic practices, the creation of installations and site-specific works, and even extending into the domain of commercial media.
