FRANCIS PICABIA
French avant-garde painter, poet and typographist. After experimenting with Impressionism and Pointillism, Picabia became associated with Cubism.

He was one of the early major figures of the Dada movement in the United States and in France. He was later briefly associated with Surrealism, but would soon turn his back on the art establishment.

The Other Manifesto




Bauhaus 1979–1983
Compilation album by Bauhaus




Knowledge is ancient error reflecting on its youth.

It has done me enormous good to finally see and read something in Switzerland that isn’t bullshit. All of it is very nice, it is really something; your manifesto expresses every philosophy seeking truth, when there is no truth, only convention. 


  Johannes Itten


The Cubists want to cover Dada with snow; that may surprise you, but it is so, they want to empty the snow from their pipe to bury DaDa.

Are you sure?

Positively sure, the facts are revealed by grotesque mouths. They think that Dada can prevent them from practicing this odious trade: Selling art expensively.
Art costs more than sausages, more than women, more than everything.

Art is visible like God (see Saint-Sulpice).

Art is a pharmaceutical product for imbeciles.

The table turns thanks to spirit; the paintings and other works of arts are like strong-box tables, the spirit is inside and becomes more and more inspired according to the auction prices.

Farce, farce, farce, farce, farce, my dear friends.
