Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), the painter and mixed media artist, was associated with Cubism, Dadaism and Surrealism, though he avoided any alliances. Duchamp’s work is characterized by its humor, the variety and unconventionality of its media, and its incessant probing of the boundaries of art. His legacy includes the insight that art can be about ideas instead of worldly things, a revolutionary notion that would resonate with later generations of artists.
here is isgnificant work of Duchamp
For an artist that dont care about the word of art is very ood and Ironic....Marcel Ducamp found it very discrediting....and for him,unnecessary adoration towards art make he want to get rid of it....his rebellation trough art is expose through his artworkk....he make fun to the others masterpiece.

so...Dada wasn’t really an art movement as much as an anti-art movement. The brutality of World War I left many jaded and chafing against the strict standards of society. The Dadaists answer to this was to rebel completely. They became consumed with irrationality and nihilism
Dada is sort of a forgotten middle child of art movements, but it really was the creative outlet of a generation and all subsequent non-realism movements owe their existence to it. Or, at least some of their existence.
