THE SEVEN TENETS OF DADA
Represented by six bright green spots in hexagonal formation plus one central  unifying spot representing the oneness or fundamental  interconnection between all beings and things in the universe.

By Art Axis ( based on the founding group of Dadaists’ collective vision )

1. Radical art innovations
2. New art inventions / concepts
3. Morally-motivated peaceful art protest and fearless critical analysis of contemporary art
4. Perceptive societal and political commentary expressed through art.
5. Serendipity / chance or random art expressions
6. Humour ( dry, whimsical or sardonic )
7. Multimedia expressions of the interconnection between, or one-ness of, all beings and things. ( central green spot )

( At least one of the 7 tenets is present and often several in various combinations within Dada Works )

The Dadaist is convinced of the overall connection between all entities and beings ” – Hugo Ball, father of Dada

Dada is essentially the search for a new morality ” – Richard Heulsenbeck, Dada’s co-founder

Work No. 838: Nuclear Trump (?)

Nuclear Trump (?)
c. Art Axis 2016

 

” The future’s blindingly bright, the future’s quite possibly Presidential Orange ”

* London Dada is politically impartial. Individuals, including politicians, should be criticised or praised by dint of their actions not personalities.
Some so-called right wing policies are ok as are some so-called left, true perception includes and transcends both.

* UPDATE 14th Nov 2016
This work revised with (?), post 11/9/2016 on the surreal election of DT as the new US president. ( The future IS Presidential Orange )
