Audio Lecture: How to Survive Civilization, or What I Have Learned from Dada

Hal Foster, Princeton University, looks at avant garde art with a focus on the mimetic excess found in Dada and its progeny.  He recalls the Cabaret Voltaire performances of poet Hugo Ball in Zurich, 1916, as pivotal to much of what followed.  Foster is introduced by Art Institute President and Director Jim Cuno.
