" a state of mind".

"Dada knows everything. Dada spits on everything. Dada says "knowthing", Dada has no fixed ideas. Dada dpes not catch flies. Dada is bitterness laughing at everything that has been accomplished... Dada is never right... No more painters, no more writers, no more religions, no more royalists, no more anarchists, no more socialists, no more police, no more airplanes, no more urinary passages... Like everything in life, Dada is useless, everything happens in a completely idiotic way... We are incapable of treating seriously any subjetc whatsoever, let alone this subject: ourselves."
Quoted in Robert Motherwell, ed.,The Dada Painters and Poets: An Anthology, 2nd ed.
(Cambridge, Mass.: Belknap Press of Harvard University, 1989)
