What Does DADA Mean Today?

We are so excited about the release of the latest edition of MAINTENANT, our annual journal of contemporary dada writing and art. MAINTENANT 10 is 192 pages of pure Dada-drenaline with mind-blowing, disruptive words and images by a stellar international cast of creators. This year's theme--WARM/HUNGER--brought climate change, global hunger, and the warmongers of the world into focus. Plus it's the 100th anniversary of the DADA movement. We asked contributors including Heide Hatry (New York), Thomas Fucaloro (Staten Island), Kofi Forson (New York), Philip Meersman (Brussels), Valery Oisteanu (New York), and Zata Banks (London), what DADA means today--and the answers will surprise you!
