Dada Ain't Your Daddy

(part 1 - written by Marc Rubin) ' unless your daddy is an imperial sadistic anarchist '

"DADAism"; As defined by Tristan Tzara in 1917 in his proclamation, "The DADA Manifesto"; DADAism is defined by DADAists as the greatest of all art movements, the culmination of fine art trans formed into anti-art. The entire DADA Manifesto can be rea d at; www.MarcRubin.com

Well, if Dadaism in all of its negative political manifestations had not been sneakily brainwashed into American society since 1917 this article would be great comedy. However, the reality and extent of its covert saturation has America at the point of collapse. The five Fine Arts entertained us and recorded religion, politics and history before our age of tech-nology. In our time the daily importance of Art remains but it is now a mixture of Art and Dada anti-art. Fine Art keeps moving forward but Tristan Tzara’s manifesto states: DADA is the abolition of the future, the abolition of memory, the abolition of archeology, the abolition of prophets (God), the destruction of the family and the negation of beauty. Knowing the basis of Dada art makes it easy to recognize. Overall it expresses a negative rant that the world is bad and should be destroyed. Knowing the difference between the two is simple. If something is presented to you as “Art”, start by reading its title and then let your inner sense of aesthetics form your personal opinion.

History

When artist Tristan Tzara wrote his "DADA" rant in 1917 he attacked the core of civilization. He came from German wealth and rode out World War I at his family's chalet in Switzerland. He was an unsuccessful budding artist before the war. In 1917 his disenchantment with the art world and the war boiled over into a document that would be seen today as obvious hate speech or at the least a nasty rant. It has the tone of a spoiled child's tantrum. It coalesced many political deviants and disenchanted artists into an anti-civilization cult known today as The Progressive Political Movement. That politic defines a common mass collective of people governed by a socialist dictatorship. In their vision art is propaganda. Personal opinion is smothered by rules for the collective. While Fine Art engenders personal opinion and emotion, Dada anti-art would be their vehicle to control humanity. In 1917 Fine Art was alive and well but through persistent clandestine effort our institutions of education and the arts have been quietly over taken and demoralized. Progressive control uses artists or sentences them to lifelong obscurity. The concepts in Tzara's manifesto persist within the progressive political movement and DADA art.

It was Salvador Dali who read an article in the Paris Times that proclaimed the birth of a new art movement called Surrealism and went to meet the Surrealists hoping to join a new exciting art style just as the Post Impressionists and Fauves and Cubists had done. As he told me in the mid 1970's he met the Surrealists and saw that none of them had produced any art in their new art style.

He said they were rich kids who talked and talked but never painted or sculpted. So Salvador decided to create and define the art style himself and went home to Spain and made his first Surreal paintings. When three of the group’s members paid him a surprise visit they saw his Surreal art invention but railed at him because of his first major invention, 'the kinda cubist kinda realistic street scene' a style that remains well enjoyed and much used. They returned to Paris and panned him in a paid article in the Paris Times. They said he made untalented pretty paintings that were uninspired and trite. Salvador still wanted the groups praise so he began to visit other members and by the time of the first DADA art exhibition he had read the DADAManifesto and was fully aware of their anarchist political cult disguised as an art movement. Many modern artists from all over Europe were hoodwinked into making art for the DADA Peace Exhibition protesting the horrors of war. Salvador did not include himself but he painted a symbolic peace dove as called for by George Braque. Salvador's dove is depicted as a dead bird within a cats belly and he added a patch of sand to his painting, a technique used by Braque, to warn Braque and the others of the DADA movement’s secret intentions. After Salvador Dali’s death the progressives began to slowly rewrite his life and the meaning of his work. For those of us who actually knew Salvador their rewrite is seen as slander. He was neither a communist or homosexual. He often used his art to wage war against the dada’s.
