Marijana Ivanova created the Poster Monday spot of the day with the poster “100 years DADA I”. Marijana was born in Vinica, Macedonia. She graduated at the National Art Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria, from the poster and visual communication department. Marijana participated in over 20 group exhibitions with paintings, but mostly with posters in Macedonia, Bulgaria, United Kingdom and Turkey.
The poster “100 years DADA I” was a faculty assignment, and the subject was: 100 years since the Dada movement began (1916). The inspiration comes from George Grosz’s collage ”Dadabild”. Dadaism remains one of the most important art movements of the 20th century because of the artists who rejected the reason, logic and aesthetics of the modern capitalist society and instead expressed anarchy, nonsense and irrationality, and with that they set the bases of postmodernism. “In the process of creating this poster I tried to isolate myself from reason and tried not to think about what I’m going to make, I just went with it. When I was done I wasn’t sure what I created, I just knew that I got to the point of the exercise – to put on some Dada artist’s shoes and try to walk” says Marijana.
