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.
