11 October at 12:00 to 31 December 2015 at 23:59 in EDT
  • Be a part of Three Rooms Press’ internationally-renowned journal Maintenant: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing & Art. Our journal is inspired by DaDa instigator and Three Rooms Press spiritual advisor Arthur Cravan — who created the very first ‘zine in the world with his early 20th century publication Maintenant and we’re proud to carry on the tradition. In past issues, we have published bold work from Neo-Dadaists worldwide. We are honored to be included in the Museum of Modern Art archives, as well museums and galleries worldwide


    DETAILS: In honor of the 100th anniversary of DADA, the theme of MAINTENANT 10 will be "WARM/HUNGER": encompassing... artists' and writers' reaction to climate change, global poverty and hunger, ongoing world war and the nationalism, rationalism and greed that has made all of this seem endless and infinite. Please submit art or writing that interprets the idea of WARM/HUNGER. And of course expose the WARMONGER with Weapons of Mass Disarmament.

    And once again –MAINTENANT 10 will be published in full color!!!

    All submissions must be received by 23h59 (11:59 pm) DECEMBER 31, 2015!

    We LOVE Dada-inspired poetic word art, collage and photography. All art must be submitted in jpeg, gif or png format, high resolution (300 dpi, 4×5 in). This year we will be printing in full COLOR. Please consider submitting either color or black-and-white images on the theme of WARM/HUNGER. If you are submitting a written piece--poetry or prose--it should be no longer than 25 lines on the theme of WARM/HUNGER.

    Please fill in the form attached to this link:

    then select the button "Choose File" and select your file from your computer. All submissions must be submitted via the form. We accept files up to 4 MB in size, in .jpeg, .png, .gif, .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .txt formats ONLY. Please submit one piece per file, and one piece at a time. You may submit a maximum of 4 pieces total. If you submit more than 4 pieces, your work will not be considered for publication. If you have any questions, please email

    Maintenant 10 will be published in June 2016, with themed launch event(s) in New York City, Los Angeles, and Europe, culminating (hopefully!) with a massive event at Caberet Voltaire, where 100 years ago, it all started. Stay tuned for details.

    And please reflect upon the cover art by revolutionary Polish artist Pawel Kuczynski entitled ARMISTICE.

    Looking forward to seeing your submissions.
