Dada 1916 in Theory

Dafydd W. Jones

Liverpool University Press

The way in which Dada aggression was refined in the textual form of the manifesto writings – in particular, the manifestos of Tristan Tzara and of Walter Serner – is the subject of this chapter, which takes twentieth-century philosophical detours in developing its argument for the works as ideology critique. What is argued here is the centrality of subjective destitution (detouring to contemporary readings of Fight Club and The Usual Suspects) as a position that the Dadaists entered via the manifesto texts, and from which a renewed and unconstrained cultural engagement became viable.

Keywords:   Tristan Tzara, Walter Serner, manifesto, ideology, Louis Althusser, interpellation, Lenin, Alain Badiou, Jacques Rancière
