Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in Zürich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1922. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature — poetry, art manifestos, art theory—theater, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works.

Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals; passionate coverage of art, politics, and culture were topics often discussed in a variety of media. The movement influenced later styles like the avant-garde and downtown music movements, and groups including surrealism, Nouveau realism, pop art, Fluxus and punk rock.

    Dada is the groundwork to abstract art and sound poetry, a starting point for performance art, a prelude to postmodernism, an influence on pop art, a celebration of antiart to be later embraced for anarcho-political uses in the 1960s and the movement that lay the foundation for Surrealism.
    —Marc Lowenthal, translator's introduction to Francis Picabia's I Am a Beautiful Monster: Poetry, Prose, And Provocation

Thank you for the feature - and I am honoured to be in it twice. My great thanks again, my friend.

Dada is nothing - it is everything. Outdated and yet very modern times of the future yesterday and yesterdays tommorow. It was the opium juice provided by pacificst yet fought with the Spartactist and Revolutionair anti-aesthetics within the walls of Germany - and christlike frontmen(Baader) and found is aesthectic compromise forms in France and America. Beyond the claims of mass products and selling. The Human mechanica- replace your organs to the organ player - be aware he is not a prayer yet a mad slayer. This is the end of the world wiping their tables with underwear fetishist who become tramdrivers with presidential sign of times: No more lobsters - let them eat cake.

Dada is so much more - as it is hollow and goes no further than the personal freedom of what is art. - I dare you to explore - especially the German Dada as can be found in Berlin and Cologne.

Wait a minute here... when did Dada become a poster epoch for Nazi cults and punk?

(no punk does not = cult = hail = not in my book)

But step back and look?

Where do the true roots lie (pun intended)?

Something to take a gander at.... without DATA there would have been no developmental perception aka :eye: to break out of thinking in the constraints of their TIME.
Not ours..:eye: what happened in the fashion and music industry there after :no:

They as a group, broke groups, disassmbled groups, aka clubs, clicks.
Re-assembled the individual thinker and self by 'obscurity'...
thus if truly looked at and not fit into a box...the zeitgeist movement developed into what our era takes advantage of...and that is film, the movement of TIME.

Data artists communicated and captured frames / still on one piece of paper. They did not have motion yet.
Never mind their bizarre theatrical productions. It was intended to wake people up! Everyone was REPRESSED!! Trapped in time, in cloning :clone: They re-invented communication. Deeeep communication. Why?

Because everything was being spelled out for them, them being the PEOPLE of World War I and peaked from.....? Sound familiar...?

Now it looks like its ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ -'shock-art’ I am questioning things here.

WWI, WWII, WW? uhmm.. We only have ONE MORE CHANCE. not One more WAY.

# 1 Question: Morallity

Look up: Data Art (images)

Then Look Up: data center (images)

I think this spells X and Y generations need to wake up Zzz generations.

Forget all or the other racial and gender issues including this isolating feeling that we are alone, we are not we are interdependent of each other. That is what makes us artists and that is what made Data great, they did not “deem” themselves to become an Easter egg basket that could be sold every freaking’ year.
They liberated themselves interdependently from the Régime’s Grip!
Now we know it all so well as the regimen.
