Dada Day, A Comic That Celebrates the Art of Childish Nonsense

Dada Day

Dada Day” is a comic by Grant Snider of Incidental Comics that “celebrates the art of childish nonsense.” Grant created this Father’s Day-themed comic for his ongoing “Who Needs Art?” series at Medium.

Dada was an early 20th-century art movement that began as a reaction to the culture and traditions of the time, radically rebuking a society they felt was responsible for World War I. The Dadaists created with anger, humor, and childlike immediacy. Common Dada mediums included collage, found objects, assemblages, and ridiculously terrible poetry. In an infamous Dada exhibition, visitors were invited to take axes to the works on display.
