MAINTENANT 15: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art serves up the theme HUMANITY: THE REBOOT.
If the early 20th-century Dadaist rebelled against everything that led up to the Great War, then today’s Neo-Dadaist must riposte, “We will not return to normal.” With climate change, warmongering, and total inequality, pandemic, authoritarianism, and more–who needs to revive the same world?
