Throughout 2016 and 2017 some of my prints are on tour with Dada ist 100; a touring exhibition of letterpress work celebrating 100 years of Dada. Originally a protest against the horrors of the First World war; Dada originated in Zurich in 1916 and encompasses performance, music, literature, visual art and typography. Over 60 letterpress workshops have contributed to the exhibition which will travel through Germany, Austria and Switzerland.  There is work behind the scenes to extend the tour to Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, the UK and the US.

For the exhibition I produced two pieces of work: Dada: nicht Dumm (Dada isn't dumb) and Dada Trumpet. The first piece Dada: nicht Dumm uses type as illustration: Dumm is typeset in the form of typographic bombs raining from the sky (and references dum-dum bullets and the mud of the trenches). Dada is expressed as an alarmed typographic face.
