Or should we say the House of NuNu…? One of the several explanations for the name “dada” is that the Romanian poet Tristan Tzara, one of the founders of this “controversial” art movement, approved in a discussion at Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich with the words “Da, Da”, which in Romanian mean: Yes, Yes…

We can only begin this invitational text by apologizing that we are a little late: on March 5th there were 50 years since Anna Akhmatova’s death. Fatally, it seems in cultural matters women still, despite occasional good intentions, come second… But we launched the competition for Alberto Giacometti late too… and just “by accident” we learned about Akhmatova’s commemoration this year.
