This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition 'The World According to Dada', organized by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum in collaboration with the Dada Archive and Research Center at the University of Iowa, United States. The exhibition was curated by Stephen C. Foster, Director of the Dada Archive.

The initial catalogue essay attempts to put boundaries around the Dada movement. Subsequent essays profile specific developments in a variety of Dada centers of activity, each followed by a catalogue of works, important publications and documents and a chronology of key events. In addition, an essay on the traces of Dada in the Taiwanese art scene of the 60s and a chronology of modern art in Taiwan (compiled by Li Chi-Ming) is included.
