This is the first comprehensive study of bodily images in Dada.

Travelling between the international centres of the movement, from Zurich to Berlin, Paris to New York, it examines a diverse range of media, including art, literature, performance, photography and film.

Its overall approach is to confront Dada's bodily images not as organic unities but as fictions that reflect on the disjunctive, dehumanised society of war-torn Europe.

These fictions occupy an ambivalent space between the battlefield (in their satirical exposure of ideology) and the fairground (in their playful manipulation and joyful renewal of the body).

The book features analyses of works by Max Ernst, Francis Picabia, Hannah Hoech, Marcel Duchamp and others, and will appeal to scholars and students of European history, cultural history, art and literature. -- .
