Raoul Hausmann (1886-1971) is one of the founders of the Dada Movement in Berlin that, during the first World War, profoundly redefined the form and goals of art. Il fut a pioneer of collage, of photography, and sensory poetry. Its iconoclastic tendencies aside, the Dada experience  challenged artistic divisions and the borderline between art and life - a postulate that has never left Hausmann nor 20th century art. In 1933, the artist fled Nazi Germany and after travelling through Europe, found refuge in Limousin where he lived until his death. 

With 700 works and a collection of considerable archives (of poetry, theoretical texts, corespondances, books and more negatives), the Hausmann funds of the departmental museum of contemporary art permitted for the creation and calculation of the ambitious works of Raoul Hausmann and the overdue historical plan and the intellectuelism that nourished him.
