I stand for free expression in a world dominated by the single thought and the established norm. This is the reason why I created my solo exhibition, “Quanta Dada, the new Dadaism”. I was drawn to the Dada movement of 1910-1920, a period of intense pictorial and intellectual creativity, which sprang forth 100 years ago in a time which profoundly parallels our own. Dada was created in reaction to an era of global pandemic, crushing autocracy, concentration of wealth, mega-corporate power, and a world on the brink of destruction. The parallels to our current lives in the 2020’s are both striking and profound. It is time for a new Dadaism which challenges all established norms, Quanta Dada, in this new era where the human voice once again deserves to be defended.
