Dada Post is an artist-run organization, founded in January 2008, by Howard McCalebb, a sculptor and active figure on the international art scene. We are an autonomous space for the production, display and discussion of current art. Foremost, we contemplate artistic expression from the standpoint of pure inspiration emanating from the source – the artist. We are keenly interested in the effects of Globalization on art practice, and the notion of a Berlin centric practice.
As a contemporary art space, we are not interested in “cultural production” per se; rather we are more focused as an outlet for creativity and expression. Dada Post is primarily concerned with artwork that is the most current, reflecting the actual meaning of the term: Contemporary Art. We offer a program of exhibitions and events. We feature films, poetry/literary readings, music and other live performances, during and between art exhibitions. We also offer internships, and one non-Berlin based artist residence – on a rental basis for up to three months duration maximum.
Dada Post is located in the former König Smoked Fish Factory. The gallery comprises two major gallery spaces, two video installation spaces, and an adjacent outdoor sculpture court.
Beginning in the year 2012, the Dada Post program became an “OPEN FOURM”.
Dada Post has abandoned the typical two-year scheduling structure of gallery exhibitions. We are pioneering an open unstructured schedule of programs (OPEN FOURM), which allows for a kind of flexibility and improvisation for staging events.
The original inspiration for Dada Post was Andy Warhol’s “FACTORY”, which was an open venue for impromptu gatherings and events. We will reclaim that vision.
PROPOSALS to the Dada Post “OPEN FOURM” MUST BE SUBMITTED IN PERSON.
