MAMAS OF DADA: WOMEN OF THE EUROPEAN AVANT-GARDE. Paula K. Kamenish. University of South Carolina Press, Columbia, 2015. 214 pp. with 13 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2014-41368 ISBN 9781611174687 In English.
Publisher's description: Mamas of Dada focuses on the lives and works of six representative female supporters of the Dada movement: Emmy Hennings, Gabrielle Buffet, Germaine Everling, Celine Arnauld, Juliette Roche, and Hannah Hoch. Paula K. Kamenish selected these women for their avant-garde pursuits in the chief centers of Dada's rebellious activity and, more important, because they left behind a written record of their involvement with the movement, which was short lived--from 1916 to 1924--but widespread geographically. The rebellious spirit of the Dada period proved portable and adaptable, and the movement led to later forms of surrealism at the same time that it borrowed from Expressionism, Constructivism, Futurism, and Cubism. Its influence was felt on sculpture, painting, dance, music, textile art, film, decoupage, photomontage, mask making, and poetry. Some female Dadaists were active participants--appearing in literary journals, on stage, or in galleries--while others were observant and recording witnesses, but each played a role in supporting the movement and its more prominent members.
