The whole web is DADA, but some sites are more DADA than others. Therefore,
this category is almost entirely useless. Still, i had to install
it when i found that i had described three independent entries as
Programming, by Paul Haeberli and Bruce Karsh. Yes, I know, futurism
is not at all the same as DADA, but I didn't want to open a page of its own
just for one link, so I put it where it fit best.
Eighth Symphony, or How Dada came to me in the form of this
self-contained manifesto is just that.
Afterthought. Opulent pictures, mostly montage/morphing-based. In
contrast to most everything else on the Web, they are quite competently
made. Makes you think about what the DADAists wouldt have created if they
lived today. The artist seems to have a fixation with genitals and american
public figures, which makes most of the pictures not very ``shocking'' to
someone like me. Now, if he made fun of people I respect (like,
eh,... Dennis Ritchie, or, Umberto Eco) by associating them with things I
abhor (like, fascism or the KKK or televangelism), i might react
differently. (Don't tell him, it might give him ideas ;-) The site also
contains some putrid (i.e., stale) links.
Find the Spam has a
nicely dadaistic touch.

Server also contains pages on Futurism. It is just one part of the Jardin Mechanismé, a
site that evades description.
Latter-day Dada is called Fluxus, or did I
misunderstand something again? (If you have the time, load the menu map (45k). While I am an
avowed imagemap-hater, the subject
merits a picture, and this map is executed quite nicely.)
(09.04.95) I can't classify it any better, and it has a
page on dada (actually, a
manifesto) in it, so I can rightfully put the Flightless Hummingbird
on this here DADA page.
Cantsin's Seven By
Nine Squares is a collection of Neoist
texts and hyper-texts. I am Monty Cantsin, and I know it. You are Monty
Cantsin, even if you don't know it, or don't admit to it.
IMHO, Neoism is post-DADA, post-Fluxus; DADA critizises society, Merz
language, and Fluxus art (? don't know enough about it); Neoism is
concerned with identity.
(18.06.95) And I thought I knew them all! Some brilliant
texts can be found in the astonishingly on-topic (if this is possible)
newsgroup alt.non.sequitur, which I
once judged to be a mere rhetoric device to be used in
followup-announcements. Compared to these articles, talk.bizarre is outright square!
Long before dinosaurs, there were electric lightbulbs, roaming free on
