Find out more about Dancing around Duchamp

The universe of Dada intersects iconoclasm, subversion, abstraction, geometry and the erotic. And one of its dominant matrixes is Duchampian conceptualism.

This is an exceptional screening of treasures from the Dada era, including Duchamp’s Anemic Cinema (1926), Man Ray’s Le Retour a La Raison (1923), Emak Bakia (1927) and various others. 

With live musical accompaniment by John Sweeney.

Emak Bakia and Retour a la raison
