Maintenant 11 Call for Dada Art & Writing–New Final Deadline: 20 January 11:59 AM EST
Be a part of Three Rooms Press’ internationally-renowned journal Maintenant: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing & Art. 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, as well museums and galleries worldwide. So … drumroll, please.:
MAINTENANT 11 THEME: EYE FOR A LIE
DETAILS: DETAILS: The theme of MAINTENANT 11 will be EYE FOR A LIE: encompassing artists’ and writers’ exposing a lie within the system of themselves. We are all part of that same system and we all are vessels to carry on the lie and it is the artists’ and writers’ duty to expose a lie not for what it’s worth but at ALL costs. Point the reader to a lie that they can see through or place another lie between two more lies. The more lies you expose the better. The”tit for tat” philosophy has taken us to this point. Let us Expose a lie and then Expose it even more. Let’s all OUTDO each other exposing Lies.
