Hugo Ball recited the first Dada manifesto at a cabaret on July 14, 1916.
Dada is the groundwork to abstract art and sound poetry, a starting point for performance art, a prelude to postmodernism, an influence on pop art, a celebration of antiart to be later embraced for anarcho-political uses in the 1960s and the movement that lay the foundation for Surrealism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dada

Dictated by the thought, in the absence of any control exercised by reason, exempt from any aesthetic or moral concern http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surrealist_Manifesto

The SCUM Manifesto (Society For Cutting Up Men) is an anarchistic, anti-establishment tract written in 1968 by Valerie Solanas that calls for the gendercide of men, and strongly criticizes several contemporary aspects of American society, including the middle class, money and power.
