Pressestimmen"In almost encyclopedic you-are-there detail, Sandqvist, a professor of art history in Stockholm, convincingly shows that Dada did not emerge fully formed in Zurich but grew out of an already active Romanian avant-garde... Tracing the careers of these remarkable group of men and women against a richly woven background of their competing yet complementary Yiddish, Eastern Orthodox, modernist, and folkloric traditions was a massive task of intellectual archeology, which Sandqvist has accomplished with ease. In particular, his explorations of archives long hidden by Romania's Communist government provide an unprecedented depth of contextual information about of the art history's most influential movements."
