We are an artist-run organization, founded in January 2008, by Howard McCalebb in Berlin, Germany. Mr. McCalebb is 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 hybridized Post Modern art 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 USA 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.
The original inspiration for both (Kunstraum) Dada Post was the Cabaret Voltaire in Zürich, Switzerland and Andy Warhol’s Factory in New York City – which were open venues for impromptu gatherings, events, and artistic experimentation. Dada Post USA will continue in this inspiration.
