Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

"Karawane" (1916) is a nonsense poem by Hugo Ball. It consists of nonsensical words. The meaning however resides in its meaninglessness, reflecting the chief principle behind Dadaism. The first two lines of the poem read "jolifanto bambla o falli bambla, großiga m'pfa habla horem."
