ONCE UPON A TIME, SOMEWHERE, A DRAMA QUEEN SAID

 

“DADA PHILOSOPHY IS THE SICKEST, MOST PARALYZING AND MOST DESTRUCTIVE THING THAT HAS EVER ORIGINATED FROM THE BRAIN OF MAN”

 

AND ANOTHER BITTER #QUEEN ADDED

 

…REACTION TO WHAT MANY OF THESE ARTISTS SAW AS NOTHING MORE THAN AN INSANE SPECTACLE OF COLLECTIVE HOMICIDE.”

 

TODAY, DT 500 ZINE HAS SEX PISTOLS IN OUR EARS, THE PISTOLS WOULD BLEST OUT

 

GOD SAVE these QUEENS!

 THE INSPIRATIONAL READYMADE

BY THIS [ART BRUT] WE MEAN PIECES OF WORK EXECUTED BY PEOPLE UNTOUCHED BY ARTISTIC CULTURE, IN WHICH THEREFORE MIMICRY. CONTRARY TO WHAT HAPPENS IN INTELLECTUALS, PLAYS LITTLE OR NO PART, SO THAT THEIR AUTHORS DRAW EVERYTHING (SUBJECTS, CHOICE OF MATERIALS EMPLOYED, MEANS OF TRANSPOSITION, RHYTHMS, WAYS OF WRITING, ETC.) FROM THEIR OWN DEPTHS AND NOT FROM CLICHÉS OF CLASSICAL ART OR ART THAT IS FASHIONABLE. HERE WE ARE WITNESSING AN ARTISTIC OPERATION THAT IS COMPLETELY PURE, RAW, REINVENTED IN ALL ITS PHASES BY ITS AUTHOR, BASED SOLELY ON HIS OWN IMPULSES. ART, THEREFORE, IN WHICH IS MANIFESTED THE SOLE FUNCTION OF INVENTION, AND NOT THOSE, CONSTANTLY SEEN IN CULTURAL ART, OF THE CHAMELEON AND THE MONKEY.”

WHILE SOMEBODY IS SCREAMING IN HEARTBREAK: 

 ” ...MANKIND IS TURNING INTO A LETHARGIC SOCIETY STANDING AT THE EDGE OF TOTAL LOSS OF CONCEPTUAL GUIDELINES NECESSARY FOR FURTHER EVOLUTION. THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY ABSORBED  IN MERELY MAINTAINING THEIR OWN COMFORTABLE LIVES.

DT500MAG IS NOT SATISFIED!

-WITH THE MODERN ACHIEVEMENTS OF CREATIVE POTENCY COMPARED TO THE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES TECHNICAL PROGRESS IS SERVING US.

 

WE THINK THE WORLD NEEDS TO REESTABLISH THE IDEOLOGICAL PARADIGM OF-

DIY 

 IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS SOCIAL ART BRUTISM SHOULD INDIVIDUALLY RESULT IN RELAXING DEVELOPMENTS OF INNOVATIONS AND SPREAD NEW INFRASTRUCTURES IN OUR DOMESTICS. IT SHOULD ALSO IMPROVE HUMAN PEACE, LOVE, AND SOLIDARITY.

† LET’S SUPPORT NOTABLE INNOVATIVE CREATIVES AROUND THE WORLD

 DT500MAG ’s  HEADLINES

 THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THAT WE ARE PRISONERS OF GRAVITY. WE SHOULD BE FIGHTERS OF GRAVITY, NOT ETHICS, MORALS, RIGHTS OR WRONGS 

 BUREAU OF STANDARDS: NUMBER 1 PRIORITY. FORGET WELFARE, WAR, SNOW REMOVAL

#STOPPACKAGING AND RECYCLE!

 YOU SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID OF MONEY: EVERYONE SHOULD SPEND THEIR FINAL CASH! 

 THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS INFLATION, SAVE FOR OVEREATING! 

 THE MEDIA IS ONLY REPRESENTING THE SURFACE, WHICH HAS BEEN ENTERTAINING FOR A WHILE, JUST KNOW IT IS GOING OUT OF STYLE 

 SCIENCE INTELLECT, INTELLECT SCIENCE, SCIENCE INTELLECT, INTELLECT SCIENCE BEAT IT TO DEATH! MAKE INTELLECT SCIENCE ON YOUR YOUTUBE, SNAP, INSTAGRAM ETC… ACCOUNT 

 FASHION IS DEAD. INDIVIDUAL DESIGN IS ALIVE! 

 WE DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE SACRIFICES IN DILEMMAS. STATE AND WORLD AFFAIRS HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE COMMON, BUT THE PACE HAS TO BE PICKED UP TO A MAXIMUM 

 REMEMBER YOU ARE ELECTED AND YOU ARE NOT RUNNING AGAINST ANYONE 

 ANYONE CAUGHT TRYING TO START A WAR WILL BE DEALT WITH SEVERELY 

 REMEMBER, WE ARE ALL EDITORS, AND WE ARE ALL EDITED 

 THE BUSIER YOU GET THE LESS TIME YOU HAVE TO MAKE MISTAKES 

 ENCOURAGEMENT YIELDS ACCOMPLISHMENT 

 CREATIVITY IS THE NEW CAPITAL

…WE ARE OPEN FOR SUGGESTIONS, YOU PROBABLY HAVE A LOT OF YOUR OWN MIND-MIND!

SOCIAL ARTISTRY ALIVE!
