On February 5 1916 Hugo Ball opened Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, attracting the attention of the most exuberant poets and artists of a Europe then at war, and becoming a legendary place for the avant-garde. It was graced by the founders of Dadaism: Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Hans Arp, Tristan Tzara, Marcel Janco, Walter Serner, Richard Huelsenbeck and Sophie Taeuber, among others.

The exhibition "DADA" displays nearly one hundred documents pertaining to the Lafuente Archive: magazines, books, catalogues, posters, cards and graphic work, which allow us to trace the activity of the different Dadaist groups that were active in Zurich, New York, Berlin, Paris, Cologne and Hannover as well as their dissemination and infiltration into other creative fields.
