Just like mom used to make.
Dadaism is something that doesn’t make sense if you try to make sense of it. It is simply a rejection of aesthetics, as you said, but also a rejection of logic and the forward progression into what dadaists believe is the demise of humanity. It says to philosophy “You are no fun. Quit pondering and enjoy your life.” It says to art, “You are of no use. Let people express themselves how they want.” It says to politics “You are simply indulging in the illusion that progression is improvement. Let people govern themselves.”
Dadaism is also self-defeating through the perspective of logic because it itself is illogical. It is internally consistent because it is externally inconsistent. Does that make sense? Because it shouldn’t.
yay art history
ornamental varieties of the domesticated common carp (Cyprinus carpio) that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens.
The word koi comes from Japanese, simply meaning “carp”. It includes both the dull grey fish and the brightly coloured varieties. What are known as koi in English are referred to more specifically as nishikigoi in Japan, literally meaning “brocaded carp”. In Japanese, koi is a homophone for another word that means “affection” or “love”; koi are therefore symbols of love and friendship in Japan. The koi is also an often recurring symbol in Irezumi, the Japanese art of traditional tattooing.
