Dadaism is still alive?
I thought it already dead and buried with the most of the 68ers...

On the other hand I'm fairly sure the french and the russians had their own books in their knapsacks to help them skewer the Germans.

Dadaism died in the early '20s. It attempted to create the effects which the public of today finds in the ubiquitous entertainment business. So the last words of Dadaism are: non omnis moriar.

Do you know any French or Russian equivalent of the German myth of Langemarck?

Yeah, I suppose Tchaikovsky, Dostoyevsky, Pushkin, Chekov, Stanislavski, Meyerhold etc are just the Hannah Montanas of their day.

mostly XIX century name one from 18th century

The idea

What are you bubbling about ? Go back to translation

Well...alot of the 68'ers put in on their flags again...

Ach doch! Dadaism runs a rake through the bins of history and hastily assembles his own collage, naming it modernism, postmodernism or uses other fancy word to deceit the public. Of course, I am only making a fun of it.

well I was trying for a wide range. Stanislavski Meyerhold having made their major contributions in 20th C. (Stan used Chekov's plays while Chekov was still alive).

Gorky d. 1936, Bulgakhov d 1940. Solzhenitsyn 1918-2008, Nijinsky d 1958, Anna Pavlova d 1931, Nureyev 1938-9.
