---Walter Benjamin recognized the importance of Dada when he wrote in 'The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction' that when authenticity ceases to be an important part of making art, "the total function of art is reversed.

Dadaism - Many words, little colour, black and white art. Materials used - News paper , image cut outs and story parts Aim - To show the main events of what have happened over time like world war 2 and 911 like as you can see with that images and the text.
