Snøhetta has developed the exhibition design, graphic profile, catalogue and merchandise for the Henie Onstad Art Center in Oslo, Norway, called “The Great Monster Dada Show”. The exhibition presents a selection of works from the eccentric Dada movement – an art movement formed during the WWI in Zürich as a response to the horrors of the war.
Dada is an avantgarde art movement from the early 20th century, which represents a rebellious and a liberating way of thinking, and the art, poetry, and performance produced by dada artists are often satirical and nonsensical.
The works displayed by the Henie Onstad Art Center this fall presents a great part of history which still is relevant to how we think today. The Dada exhibition will showcase over 200 artworks by 43 different artists, including Jean Arp, Hugo Ball, Andre Breton, and many more.
