Co-editors Kat Georges and Peter Carlaftes will discuss DADA as a catalyst to creators, and its necessity 100 years later in this time of pandemic. 14 artists will do the readings presented in the 2020 edition of the premiere journal MAINTENANT 14: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art, and discuss their vision on future interpersonal relations, intellectual advancement, and politics.
Today’s war is for the survival of the planet. In MAINTENANT 14: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art, the weapon of choice is Dada. Everyone in the world is affected by the growing impact of climate change, pollution, plastics, and lack of sustainability. The last edition confronts the situation with a bold and rebellious collection of work that shows the absurdity of continuing the practices that have taken earth to the precipice of extinction. Using the theme “UN-SUSTAIN-A-BULL-SH*T” MAINTENANT 14 creators turn poetry and art into weapons that expose, confront, and lambast policies that have taken the planet to tipping points in the climate system, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse.
