In 1922, Kurt Schwitters and Theo van Doesburg went on tour to spread the gospel of Dada. Their chaotic campaign of lectures and performances took Holland by storm, and this poster was their official merch. Like a contemporary band poster, this flier for the Kleine Dada Soirée was both an art object, a souvenir, and an even program, describing the evenings festivities including ragtime music by Erik Satie, insufferable abstract poetry by Schwitters, and something mysteriously called "Dadasofie" by Doesburg. The real highlight of the object though was its multilingual slogans, which included "Dada est contre le futur, Dada est mort, Dada est idiot, vive Dada!" — or "Dada is against the future, Dada is dead, Dada is idiotic, Long live Dada!" 


It's a chaotic piece, but now, just like the newly initiated Dutch Dadists, you can take one home for a nominal fee. Consider it your tithe in spreading the Good Word of Dada. 


All Obelisk prints use durable, fade resistance inks on museum-quality 110 lb (250 gsm) matte, uncoated archival paper, and are shipped in sturdy packaging directly to you door. This poster is framed, and it's honestly a really high-quality black wood frame. I'm a huge snob about this sort of this, and it has my full blessing. The frame and print ship together, but you'll need to remove the plexi's protective coating and insert the print. It's easy, I promise, just don't accidentally throw out the print—you'll find it in the frame box, resting securely in a cardboard envelope.
