Be a part of Three Rooms Press’ internationally-renowned journal Maintenant: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing & Art. Deadline has been extended so you now have until January 15 to submit your work!
Our journal is inspired by Dada instigator and Three Rooms Press spiritual advisor Arthur Cravan — who created the very first ‘zine in the world with his early 20th century publication Maintenant and we’re proud to carry on the tradition. In past issues, we have published bold work from Neo-Dadaists around the globe. We are honored to be included in the New York Museum of Modern Art archives, The Smithsonian, as well museums and galleries worldwide. It’s Dada time. And now . . . pull back the curtain:
THEME: A.I. ARTIFICIAL IGNORANCE
If you think Artificial Intelligence will mark the end of humanity then think again.
Look at the world around you. Where is the intelligence? Where? Lying is the norm. Incompetence is rampant. Information is soiled with whatever spin is footing the bill.
Time to concentrate on exposing the ignorance. Lay it right out there for the whole world to see.
The Kool-Aid is your mind!!!!
Our cover for MAINTENANT 13 features the incredible work of renowned painter and collagist Fred Tomaselli, whose work has been exhibited worldwide, and has been used for album covers of Laura Cantrall, The Magnetic Fields, Phish, and more. The new issue will be released in June 2019 and supported by US and international performances.
