Cabaret Voltaire (Zurich)

The Cabaret Voltaire was founded on February 5, 1916 by Hugo Ball in Zürich as a cabaret for artistic and political purposes. It was situated above a theatre, where art exhibitions were displayed. The works in the Cabaret would make fun of the serious works downstairs. These cabarets were usually for the focus of experimenting or up and coming artistic groups. The Surrealists, who were descended directly from the Dadaists, used it as a forum for their art.
