DADA POST Presents:
An exhibition of artists who engage in sociopolitical commentary through their artwork.
Opening: 7:00PM, Saturday, March 19th, 2016
March 19th to April 10th, 2016
It has been said that artists fight with their minds rather than with knives, bullets, or bombs.
If there is one thing that artists who engage the sociopolitical quagmires of civic life are good at, it is stirring up argument and rousing people with passion, emotion, and enthusiasm. The artist is often recognized as a rabble-rouser: somebody who stirs up anger, or other strong feelings especially for sociopolitical causes.
For the first exhibition of our 2016 season (Kunstraum) Dada Post is planning a socio-politically themed exhibition titled Pow! #StandForSomething. The exhibition will examine the role of visual art practice in contemporary sociopolitical struggle. We are interested artwork that is aimed at critically investigating the field in which visual culture meets a cry for political representation, social emancipation and the expression of discontent. It looks at the visual language of dissent and the flow of esthetics between artwork and civic responsibility.Pow! #StandForSomething, will be an exhibition bringing into the focus of public debate a diversity of sociopolitical passions emanating from within the “Liberal” opposition ideologies. The exhibition looks at the dynamics of public discourse, and the evolving content and rhetoric of sociopolitical protest.

(Kunstraum) Dada Post has appropriated the Andy Warhol Factory concept, as a model of organization. We are not interested in cultural production per se, as much as we are interested in being an outlet for creative expression and artistic innovation.
As a contemporary art space, (Kunstraum) Dada Post is concerned primarily with the art that reflects the actual meaning of the term: Contemporary Art. We exhibit artists from all over the world, but we are keenly interested in the notion of a Berlin centric practice.
The Dada Post program is an “OPEN FOURM”.
The Dada Post “OPEN FOURM” structure allows for a kind of flexibility and improvisation for our programs.
