2016 marks a century since the Dada movement first burst onto the European art world. Since then, society and ideas have changed unrecognizably due to rapid globalization and technology. And yet, we can see trends in contemporary art that recall the pioneering work of the Dadaists.

Inspired by the name of the cabaret where the movement originally started, “Gallery Voltaire” is a series of exhibitions and performances as well as a pop-up store that reconsiders the 100-year-old experiments of Dada, which continue to resonate today.
