MAINTENANT 13: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art serves up the controversial theme,”A.I. ARTIFICIAL IGNORANCE’.” If you think humanity will be destroyed by Artificial Intelligence –think again. Where’s the intelligence? Ignorance is what prevails as rational thought takes a backseat to playground pettiness. With ARTIFICIAL IGNORANCE, Our Artists and Writers take the reigns to completely expose the dumb and dumbing-down of humanity head on and for the reader/listener –The Truth WILL set you free!!!
Copies of MAINTENANT 13: A Contemporary Journal of Dada Writing and Art will be available for purchase at the venue!!!
