Jean Arp (Sep. 16, 1886 - 1966): Untitled (Collage with Squares Arranged according to the Laws of Chance), 1916-17 - Torn-and-pasted paper and colored paper on colored paper (MoMA)
"One of the founders of the Dada movement in Zurich in 1916, Arp challenged existing notions of art and experimented with spontaneous and seemingly irrational methods of artistic creation. This work is one of several collages he made by scattering torn rectangular pieces of paper onto a paper support. He and other Dada artists embraced the notion of chance as a way of relinquishing control—a kind of depersonalization of the creative process that would influence many subsequent generations of artists." - MoMA caption, 2008
