DaDa in NYC & The Whitney Won’t Go Away…

Seems as if there was/is a festival of Swiss ingenuity. They have included the DaDa movement, which is the premise of my book The Z Factor. And BTW Hans Kasper Ivan Karp (my main character) performed and collaborated with Kurt Schwitters and Hugo Ball. Unfortunately all the documentation was destroyed during the wars, rendering everything untraceable.

Seems very interesting and I wish I had learned about this earlier. White Box Center on Broome Street has/is hosted the visuals and DaDa gossip. Anyway if you listen to the Clocktower interview it’s very interesting and timely. Seems as if the issues we are facing today were addressed back then.

On another note talk about milking the press:

They refer to this as “art as strategy.” Again if that is the case it is extremely successful.
