Dada Magazine, Issues 1, 2, 3 (1917-1918) at UBUWEB. "...ttempting to promulgate Dada ideas throughout Europe, Tristan Tzara launched the art and literature review Dada. Appearing in July 1917, the first issue of Dada, subtitled Miscellany of Art and Literature, featured contributions from members of avant-garde groups throughout Europe, including Giorgio de Chirico, Robert Delaunay, and Wassily Kandinsky. Marking the magazine's debut, Tzara wrote in the Zurich Chronicle, 'Mysterious creation! Magic Revolver! The Dada Movement is Launched.' Issue 2 appeared in December of 1918. Issue number 3 violated all the rules and conventions in typography and layout and undermined established notions of order and logic. Printed in newspaper format in both French and German editions, it embodies Dada's celebration of nonsense and chaos with an explosive mixture of manifestos, poetry, and advertisements - all typeset in randomly ordered lettering. Included is Tzara's 'Dada Manifesto of 1918,' which was read at Meise Hall in Zurich on July 23, 1918, and is perhaps the most important of the Dadaist manifestos."
