Projecteur. Directrice Céline Arnauld. (All published)

Dada. Arnauld, Céline (Ed.)

Paris. Au Sans Pareil. 1920, 21 mai
The only issue of this scarce Dadaist journal.

'Projecteur' was edited by Céline Arnauld, wife of Paul Dermée. It includes texts by Eluard, Picabia, Tzara, Bréton, Aragon and Soupault, alongside Dermée himself and Ribemont-Dessaignes.

The final leaf contains a detailed announcement of a Dada festival on Wednesday, May 26 1920 at the Salle Gaveau.

'Projecteur is a lantern for the blind. It doesn't bargain for its lights; they're free. Projecteur doesn't care about money, fame or advertising - it shines its light on those who live in cold, darkness and boredom. Incidentaly, the light is also reduced by a madreporic pullulation in the celestial spaces.' (Céline Arnauld).
