What is Dada? Jed Rasula, Head of the English Department and Helen S. Lanier Distinguished Professor at UGA, is the author of Destruction Was My Beatrice, a comprehensive history of the Dada art movement, which began in 1916 and has influenced some of the greatest artists of our time, including William S. Burroughs, Marshall McLuhan, the Beatles, Monty Python, David Byrne, John Cage, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and countless others. Dr. Rasula comes to ICE to offer insight into Dada just ahead of the Dada Centennial, a celebration and commemoration of 100 years of this historic artistic phenomenon, beginning on February 11 at the Flicker Theatre and Bar in downtown Athens.
