Dada. A protest movement by a group of European artists against World War I, bourgeois society, and the conservativism of traditional thought. Its followers used non sequiturs and absurdities to create artworks and performances which defied intellectual analysis. They also included "found" objects in sculptures and installations. The founders included the French artist Jean Arp and the writers Tristan Tzara and Hugo Ball.
