Imitating Nature in its mode of operation; a purposeful purposelessness or a purposeless play. Tools: chance operations; I CHING and lists of possibilities. Dissociating the composer from the product - avoiding his subjectivity.
The revolt against the kultur. The liberation of the individual - dada as a moral stand. The many branches of dada.
