Dada-Jok 1 (May 1922).

Dada-Jok was an anti Dada review printed in a response by Ljubomir Micic and Branko Ve Poljanski to Dragan Aleksić's promotion of Dada in Zagreb, published in May 1922. The single issue betrays a close familiars set out parody. One could easily mistake it for a Dada journal. The articles in Dada-Jok are by Poljanski, Micic and his wife, Anuska, under the pseudonym 'Nina-Naj'. The images in particular resemble Dada works. Anti-Dada Zagreb for example, is a reproduction of a painting of people gathered in Zagreb's city square by tailor and self-taught artist Petar Bauk, to which the editors added the words 'Anti-Dada' and 'Zenit'. Dada-Jok also features two Dada-like collages by Poljanski: an 'anti-dada construction' featuring the words 'Dada', 'Dada-Jok', and 'Poljanski', and another that combines randomly chosen images with the word 'dada', 'I am a Dadaist', 'Are you a Dadaist?' and 'Every shoemaker (Schuster) is a Dadaist', written in German.
