If you think Artificial Intelligence will mark the end of humanity then think again. Look at the world around you. Where is the intelligence? Where? Lying is the norm. Incompetence is rampant. Information is soiled with whatever spin is footing the bill. The Kool-Aid is your mind. MAINTENANT 13: A Journal of Contemporary Dada Writing and Art concentrate on exposing the ignorance with this issue's theme "Artificial Ignorance." The issue features the work of leading contemporary thinkers and creators from around the world who utilize collage, juxtaposition, and absurdity as an artistic protest against the madness of the world today.
