Berlinische Galerie Museum of Modern Art

Finally finding the time to talk to you about a fascinating show I saw in Berlin at the aforementioned museum.  One of the exhibits there was called Dada Africa: Dialogue with the Other.  "Marking the centenary if the Dada Movement, this is the first exhibition about Dada's response to non-European cultures and their art."

I thought I was smart picking up an English guide to the work on display, but I didn't photograph all the numbers that correspond to the guide.  So other than a few Hannah Hochs, most are not IDed.  But here are some highlights.  

I believe this costume is African and boy does it remind me of the work of Nick Cave, the artist, not the musician.

This assemblage might also be by John Heartfield

I did record some video, BUT, don't have a decent video editing software on this laptop... so I'll edit it on the big studio computer and upload it to vimeo and then post a link....
