Dadaism is a revolt by certain 20th-century painters and writers in France, Germany and Switzerland against smugness in traditional art and Western society. Works of these painters illustrated absurdity through paintings of purposeless machines and collages of discarded materials, which expressed their cynicism about conventional ideas of form and their rejection of traditional concepts of beauty.
