A collaboration between art and science, Dada-Data is a digital project created in early 2016 by Montreal creatives Anita Hugi, David Dufresne, and Akufen Studio. Dada-Data celebrates the 100th anniversary of Dada through a series of live events called Dada Hacktions. Events such as Connected Readymades, held February 5, 2016, to March 4, 2016, was an event that installed 3-D printers at the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, the birthplace of the Dada movement. One printer created Duchamp's Fountain; the second, Sophie Taeuber's Dada Head; and the third, The Gift by Man Ray. Online features are aimed at freeing users from surveillance in the spirit of Dada. Additionally, there's GAFA, which aims to "free yourself from Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon," and Block, a browser plugin that replaces ads with images of Dada artworks (not compatible with Firefox Quantum). There's also Tweet Poetry - anyone with a Twitter account can contribute.
