Outraged by the Cologne Dada group’s exclusion from exhibitions, Ernst and Johannes T. Baargeld used the single-issue journals they coedited, Bulletin D and Die Schammade, to publish Dada artworks, irreverent texts, wordplays, and scathing commentaries on the contemporary art establishment. The cover that Ernst and Jean (Hans) Arp created for Bulletin D (D for Dada) features an illogical arrangement of their enigmatic vignettes.
