Dada emerged out of a flock of artist to neutral Switzerland during World War One. In response to the nationalism and rationalism, Dada took ideas from Cubism, Futurism, Constructivism, and Expressionism. The Dada artists rejected traditional artistic techniques. Oppose to the authoritarian governments in Europe, there primary interest was in rebelling against cultural snobbery and support for the war. The name is a colloquial french term meaning hobbyhorse, and sounding like child's first words, the term Dada became a symbol for childlessness, and distance from the social elites. The Dada culture supported internationalism.
