Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of DADA !

Dada's 100th anniversary is so huge that even the Financial Times is covering it! What would Hugo Ball say about that?

For the past 10 years, Three Rooms Press has published the MAINTENANT journal, an annual collection of contemporary dada writing and art from around the world. Our celebration of 100 years of Dada continues, following three hugely successful June events in New York and Los Angeles featuring contributors from MAINTENANT 10 (ISBN 978-1-941110-44-7, June 2016, Three Rooms Press), which includes work from the U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Serbia, Ukraine, Russia, Israel, Palestine, Pakistan, Nigeria, South Africa, India, Australia, Japan, and more. Working with the theme "WARM/HUNGER," contributors examined ideas of global warming and global hunger, and the "warmongers" that profit off these conditions. MAINTENANT 10 also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the start of DADA, with quotes from DADA founders throughout the volume. Order your copy directly from Three Rooms Press here.
