dada and masterpieces

What i found most interesting about the Dada movement was how dadaist condemned the masterpiece in art.  I have always thought that creating art meant that you wanted to create something different, ground breaking, unique and magnificent.  But in reality, Dada’s opposition to the glorification of art let to the creation of many works that hold these same characteristics and may even be called master pieces themselves.  I agree with DaDa that every generation should have its own identity, however I think that masterpieces have stood the test of time for a reason.  I believe that masterpieces have qualities that should be experienced by everyone and that is why they stand the test of time.  Whether you are looking at a da Vinci, a Van Gogh, or a Jackson Pollick, they all deserve to stand the test of time.
