VIRGIN MICROBE: ESSAYS ON DADA. Ed. by David Hopkins and Michael White. Northwestern University Press, Evanston, 2014. Avant-Garde & Modernism Studies. 330 pp. with 36 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2013-19006 ISBN 9780810129399 In English.
Publisher's description: The essays in Virgin Microbe foreground thematic issues and advance recent theoretical agendas, such as the study of identity construction and the relationship between the avant-garde and mass culture, rather than focusing on biographies of individual Dadaists or centers of Dada activity. The authors represent a wider spectrum of disciplines and a broader international perspective than other recent collections on Dada. Ambitious in terms of contemporary academic interests, Virgin Microbe draws on a rich spectrum of intellectual traditions and contexts, prioritizing Dada's metaphysical enquiries and its complicated connection to modernity.
