Jed Rasula's Dadá. El cambio radical del siglo XX (Argumentos) (Spanish PDF

By Jed Rasula

«Se invita a los jóvenes artistas de Zúrich para que acudan con sus propuestas y aportaciones sin que importe su orientación particular.» Así decía el llamamiento que Hugo Ball publicó en un periódico de Zúrich el 2 de febrero de 1916 cuando decidió fundar el mítico Cabaret Voltaire, l. a. cuna del dadaísmo. Y lo hizo sin saber quiénes acudirían ni qué llevarían. Tres días más tarde, el Voltaire abrió sus puertas sin ninguna planificación previa. «Mítico» es un adjetivo que suele asociarse, con frecuencia, al dadaísmo y a algunos de sus geniales representantes: Tristan Tzara, primero en Zúrich y luego en París, junto a André Breton, futuro padre del surrealismo; George Grosz en Berlín, donde también destacaron artistas como Raoul Hausmann y Hannah Höch, pioneros del college y del fotomontaje, y Richard Huelsenbeck, autor del insustituible Almanaque dadá; los angeles pareja Duchamp-Picabia con su dadaísmo neoyorquino… Pero, como oportunamente se pregunta el autor de este libro, ¿qué hubo de verdad y qué de mito en el origen y l. a. evolución del dadaísmo? En cualquier caso, esta amena y documentada biografía colectiva, en los angeles senda de los trabajos de historia narrativa de Barbara Tuchman y Peter homosexual, retrata las figuras y los momentos más brillantes de un movimiento que reworkó radicalmente el arte del siglo XX y cuyas ramificaciones llegan hasta nuestros días. Una revolución antiacadémica y provocadora que, partiendo de l. a. concept de destrucción, logró construir obras artísticas y literarias de una frescura y una vitalidad que aún no se han apagado. Sin dadá, nos cube Jed Rasula, hoy no tendríamos collages musicales, ni fotomontajes, ni happenings… Y ni siquiera habrían existido el surrealismo, el pop paintings y el punk. «Sin dadá, los angeles vida moderna tal como l. a. conocemos difícilmente podría calificarse de moderna.»

[…] Ebbene in questo studio sulle interviste e su articoli dimenticati del Maestro emergono in tutta los angeles loro forza i pensieri di de Chirico sull'arte, espressi con una naturalezza disarmante e sconcertante consistent with cui si insinua anche in noi los angeles sua suggestion che tutta l. a. modernità sia condannabile; concept paradossale, certo, ma sulla quale conviene riflettere...

GIORGIO DE CHIRICO (Volos, Grecia 10 luglio 1888 – Roma 20 novembre 1978) è l'inventore della pittura metafisica ed è il più grande maestro italiano ed internazionale del Novecento: le sue opere infatti sono conservate nei più importanti musei del mondo, ny, Museum of recent artwork; Philadelphia, Philadelphia Museum of artwork; Berlino, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin Nationalgalerie; Londra, The Tate Gallery, Parigi, Musée d'Art Moderne e Musée de los angeles Ville; San Paolo del Brasile, Museu de Arte Contemporanea; Venezia, The Peggy Guggenheim assortment; Roma, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna, e inoltre in molte importanti collezioni deepest in Italia e all'estero.
