Photos from the Second Brownstone Poets 2014 Anthology Reading on Thursday, March 19 at Barnes and Noble Booksellers in Park Slope Brooklyn

Here are the photos taken from the Second Brownstone Poets 2014 Anthology Reading on Thursday, March 19 at Barnes and Noble Booksellers in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  I apologize for messing up a few of the shots and for missing out on a photographing a few poets.  The event started out slow, but people kept coming in and so did the excitement, making this event standing room only.  Kudos to our Guest Poet George Held and to the contributors who were able to make the event.  They are as follows:

Maintenant 6: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art is the fifth edition of an annual collection of contemporary Dada work inspired by Dada instigator and Three Rooms Press spiritual advisor Arthur Cravan. This issue, edited by Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges, includes bold poetry, cutting-edge visual art, essays and word art from Neo-Dadaists worldwide, including: Roger Conover, Mina Loy, Jerome Rothenberg, Giovanni Fontana, Fork Burke, Paolo Pelosini, Constantin Xenakis, Vittore Baroni, George Wallace, Scott Wannberg, Duska Vrhovac, Bart Verburg, Mike Mollett and more than 100 other artists. Color cover, with interior black and white text and images. It is now archived in the MOMA library.


The original Dada movement peaked from 1916-1922, primarily involved visual arts, literature—poetry, art manifestoes, art theory—theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Its purpose was to ridicule what its participants considered to be the meaninglessness of the modern world. In addition to being anti-war, dada was also anti-bourgeois and anarchist in nature.
