• Vertical Horizons by the photo plagiarist Jacquet-Lagreze.

    " Vertical Horizons" - a new book of " upwards vertigo-inducing images" of Hong Kong architechture, captured by Frenchman Romain Jacquet-Lagreze.
    It may be a new book and the images rendered stunning in advanced digital manipulation but the idea is nicked.. and in the case of "Panic Attack" by Dean Christopher and Michael St.Mark from 2007 there would seem to be definite legal grounds for IP copyright infringement law suit proceedings - for the time being you decide, as they say...

  • Work No. 242 re-re-revisited; Roy's Boys' Early Word Cup Bath

    Just when we thought it safe to stow away this particular New Dada work from 2006 on account of a half-decent performance by the England boys in the Euros...up pops the dreaded record World Cup '14 early exit after a lacklustre and disjointed performance under plodder Hodgson.
    Some things (will?) never change, especially the anachronistic one-way mirror that is the FA.

  • About us

     Hugo B
    all, 1886 - 1927
     Father of Dada and instigator of Cabaret Voltaire, Zurich 1916

    ” Art, for us, is not an end in itself, but an opportunity for true perception and criticism of the times in which we live”

    ” Our art is a burning search for the buried face of this age, for the possibility of it being stirred, awakened "

    ” The Dadaist wages war against the agony of our age and its intoxication with death."

    ” The Dadaist is convinced of the overall connection between all entities and beings ..”

    Founded in 1916 at Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich by the German writer, musician philosopher and mystic Hugo Ball, the seminal art movement known as Dada, by 1922 had as its major European hubs Zurich, Paris, Barcelona, Hanover and Berlin – yet curiously no UK Dada expression was ever established, the only artist associated with the original movement to live (briefly) in the UK – Kurt Schwitters – having had his Merz artwork ridiculed and ignored by the perennially-elitist London art establishment of 1945/6; and perhaps that explains why.

    London Dada, founded by multimedia artist and writer Michael St.Mark in 2005, pioneering the online art gallery genre via 691 ( shadowed by Saatchi Online in 2006); is representing the historically missing link in Dada by following in the footsteps of its founder, invoking vitally-needed political, social and moral perception, invention, criticism and protest within British contemporary art and in the spiritual shipwreck that is UK society today.

    Dada, cutting-edge scourge of the establishment and undisputed catalyst for the sea change in art that occurred during the early 20th C. is re-surfacing through its missing jigsaw piece London expression – a 21st century cyber and public art antidote for the hi-jacking, side-tracking and stifling of UK art into a tightly closed shop run by a clique of old school tie elitists who use money as a means of rigging the art market into turning massive personal profits. Heading a network of kowtowing gallery owners, they render contemporary art virtually sterile; reducing the big galleries to little more than purveyors of the the bawdy and the tawdry; selectively promoting through those evergreen guarantors of hype-to-order, the fawning careerworths of the UK arts review media – a harem of hand-picked ‘shock or bore' cash cow artists.

    As against .. ” For us, art is not an end in itself … but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.” – Hugo Ball, founder of DADA, 1916.

    ‘True perception and criticism of our times' – subjects considered almost taboo in UK art today, where rampant cronyism and self-serving politics within the most insidiously entrenched and brazenly divisive class system in the world blocks truth, innovation and free range of expression throughout the arts.

    " The British (establishment ) are never comfortable with artists who think” - Adrian Hamilton, arts reviewer @ The Independent.

    The art business is nothing if not an insidious knickerless tart” – Mike von Joel, editor, State magazine.

    So. The London Dada vision outwith this sorry arts and culture morass of conformist stagnation and stasis is the instigation of an ‘art spring' – a 21st C. enlightenment that re-invigorates art with critical social commentary and a new direction that eschews the anachronistic mediocrity and the worn-out cogs of contemporary art.

    We are currently inviting development patrons to invest in the London Dada brand and 691 gallery in Shoreditch – investors who feel passionately about the need for a new zeitgeist art that reflects current times, that addresses moral issues and injustices, a fresh creative direction that critically engages and communicates rather than superficially entertains baffles or nauseates; in short art that re-connects with life, that offers fresh perceptions and thought-provoking narratives outwith the current unspoken yet stifling censorship of critical thought within UK art.

    "London Dada – fresh art with true perception and moral protest, free of the establishment straightjacket of sterile conformity”.
