---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. Instead of being based on ritual it begins to be based on another practice, politics." ---Image:http://www.johnvalentino.com/Teaching/Art190/Projects/190Proj2/Dada.html
