A New DaDa for the Naughts

"In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom." - JG Ballard

Though our blog banner suggests a deep love of interwar Russian constructivism, our hearts and minds belong to dada (and thusly to Spanish artist Dani Sanchis, whose massive oeuvre of canny mixed media collage work summons a beautiful, Gordian world in which madness is celebrated rather than treated, naturalized rather than pathologized). View more from this contemporary dadaist and philosopher of the human condition at his refreshingly spare blog, Tarda Mucho.

Love this. I'm a huge Russian constructivism fan as I am a dada. Thanks for sharing that blog....I'm adding it to my bookmarks as we speak.

Insanity is the only way to be a real artist. Never color in the lines.

I love when art gives you an emotion as soon as you look at it. I feel so much when I look at Dada's work. Great post.
