  1. sorry we lost yr formatting on this one. tried a few things that didn’t work out, but wanted to post the poem anyhow. it does lend more to dada the way you spaced/breathed it. sorry.

  2. Humani nihil a me alienum puto. Magma est veritas et praevalet. Praemonitus, praemunitas. Parthasarathy…Primus inter pares! Ars longa, vita brevis. NOTA BENE: Marcel Janco recalled,
    We had lost confidence in our culture. Everything had to be demolished. We would begin again after the “tabula rasa”. At the Cabaret Voltaire we began by shocking common sense, public opinion, education, institutions, museums, good taste, in short, the whole prevailing order.
    Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in neutral Zürich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1920. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature (poetry, art manifestoes, art theory), theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti war politic through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals. Passionate coverage of art, politics, and culture filled their publications. The movement influenced later styles, Avant-garde and Downtown music movements, and groups including Surrealism, Nouveau Réalisme, Pop Art and Fluxus.
