Starting in February 1916, at the end of a cobblestone alleyway-street called the Spiegelgasse, a local Zurich cafe welcomed a piano player Hugo Ball and Emmy Hennings, a cabaret singer, who opened up what they called the Cabaret Voltaire that became DADA when they were joined by Jean (a.k.a. Hans) Arp, Sophie Tauber, Richard Huelsenbeck and three Roumanians, Tristan Tzara and two brothers named Janco, Marcel and Georges. It spread all over the world.

Now it is 100 years since the beginning of Dada....
