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 and holistic 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
