Dada is still very much alive

It was good to see this article in the Elephant yesterday entitled "The Artists Keeping the Absurdist, Irreverent Spirit of Dada Alive". It highlights several interesting artists (Sang Woo Kim, Leo Fitzmaurice, Matilda Moors and Ted Targett to be more precise) that they claim are keeping Dada alive. But has it ever gone away?


Well we don't think so. Some of us have been staying true to the Dadaist faith for many a long year. The influence of Dada can be seen everywhere in popular culture from the visual arts, music, literature, comedy, film, advertising and something as ubiquitous as the social media meme. Dada like art itself is everywhere.
