This poster is for the staging of Georges Ribemont-Dessaignes dadaist play The Emperor of China, performed by the Theater Teatro la Fede in 1969. The group, influenced by artists associated with Fluxes such as John Cage, as well as classic European dada, fermented their own style of fragmentary kitsch, provocation, and performance. The poster, drawing on their dada influences, features the reproduction of a collage of Max Ernst.
