The Great Art Festival

On May 15th, 1918, the Great Art Festival was held in Berlin. Posters were hung all over the city, advertising the 'First German Postwar Renaissance of the Arts.' This was the height of Dada. At the festival, many forms of simultaneity took place, questioning the meaning of life, or art-for-art's-sake. A race between a typewriter and a sewing machine, and twelve poets reading their work simultaneously.
