Should we have "dada artist" or "Dada artist"? A colleague tells me that the lowercase form is proper for the adjectival use. The Britannica article on Kurt Schwitters has "German Dada artist and poet" but The Museum of Modern Art article on George Grosz has "his subject, John Heartfield, a friend, a fellow Berlin Dada artist, and a frequent collaborator."

Assumingly it is problematic. And there might be a dispute. I scanned my books and met more often "Dada artist" than "dada artist". In German texts they are often refered as "Dada-szene" (Dada scene), "Dada-Kuenstler" (Dada artist). Personally I have no opinion on that. --Aphaia 03:40, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)


  • [Dada is the] absolute and unquestionable faith in every god that is the immediate product of spontaneity.
