DID DADA BECOME A CASE OF AMALGAMATED CONFUSION …

… during the 100  years of its existence? Who could tell? Perhaps the Californian mail artist whose envelope reached my letterbox yesterday?

I
Beautiful!
II
YEAH!!
III
It is, Herr Keith, it is. What other emotions did you expect to be admitted by your recipient?
IV
Blue Dada stamps for the Blue Blockhead – that fits well.
V
I have used this piece already for a postcard going out to Australia tororrow.
VI
Directly from Dadaheim in California but never actually posted.
VII
Whatever that means – thanks a lot Mr. A. Confusion. Vielen Dank!

  1. Funny, I’ve already had to explain that post art, but am happy to repeat it. Dada on dada non . . . Written in the Russian language using the Cyrillic alphabet [would it be Russian otherwise?]. Yes, yes . . . There I go again, mangling another language [aside from my native tongue, Englosh, which I so freely mangle as much as I want to]. Glad to hear you had a use for that trio of folks and already have heading out for another overseas journey. Be well, do well, mail well. K.

    1. I knew it had to be Russian but didn’d understand. Just had a vague idea it must have to do something with Dada. and there had been Dadaists in the early Soviet Union before Stalin’s dictatorship (not that Lenin had been much better): Alexej Krutschonych, K. S. Malewitsch, Dawid Burljuk etc. The official Soviet statement on the loose global art movement (“DADA NJET”) hasn’t been quite true, of course. Thank you, Keith. You’ll receive something from me soon.
