' The Art Newspaper, January 2007 US quotes 'Lavishly oversized and impressively illustrated, DADA, will probably serve as the definitive study of the movement for some time now.' ARTimes, Jan/Feb 2007 'Phaidon and Kuenzli offer a rich foundation with which to dive deeper into a study of not only dada practices and art but also to European art movements of the 20th century. Big illustrations, rich explanatory notes and references make this another must-have from Phaidon press.' Erik Lopez, Slug, March 2007 'This latest edition to Phaidon's "Themes and Movements" series follows hot on the heels of the 2005 exhibition catalog and succeeds in adding depth to the existing survey literature.'
