  • The International Online Bibliography of Dada is the online catalog of the International Dada Archive at the University of Iowa Libraries. The catalog includes materials in all formats that have been cataloged for the collection, including books, essays in books, periodical articles, manuscripts, sound and videorecordings, and other media related to the Dada movement and to the individual dadaists. These materials are located throughout the University of Iowa Libraries, but are primarily housed in the Main Library and the Art Library. Most of the manuscript holdings are on microfilms that were made in various public and private collections in Europe and North America in the early 1980s, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Jerome Foundation.

    [abstract] A tripartite study of the life and work of Hans Richter. The first part traces succinctly his varied career, outlining his contribution to the Dada movement and emphasizing the importance of his cinematographic work. In the interview which follows, Richter himself explains the mixture of idealism and anarchism which constituted Dada and how personally he aimed to combine plan and pure chance, full consciousness and aleatory inspiration, in his work. He considers dada as the father of modern art and discusses its link with the work of contemporary artists. Finally he comments on the relationship between art and the commercial market. In the third section, Gauthier surveys his major achievements, particularly in the fields of painting an film, emphasizing his innovatory genius and constant adherence to dadaist principles.
