After DADA [1]

(1920 Raoul Hausmann - Dada Siegt - {Dada conquers})
    "No more painters, no more writers, no more musicians, no more sculptors, no more religions, no more republicans, 
     no more royalists, no more imperialists, no more anarchists, no more socialists, no more bolsheviks, no more 
     politicians, no more proletarians, no more democrats, no more armies, no more police forces, no more nations, 
     in other words enough of all these stupidities, nothing more, nothing more, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing."
                                                                                                       Louis Aragon

                               Then Came Surrealism  
1924 with Andre Breton's Manifesto
     "Surrealism does not allow those who devote themselves to it to forsake it whenever they like. 
     There is every reason to believe that it acts on the mind as drugs do; like drugs, it creates 
     a certain state of neeed and can push man to frightful revolts."
