Letter conversations are a slow old school cultural technique of connecting to another person in our mind. As letter writers we carefully explain and illustrate our world views and experiences and we patiently wait for a response.
Patricia will let you have a few short glimpses on her recent different letter exchanges across the globe.
The Dada world view
invites us to be very touchy in the face of thought and action doctrines.
The Dada reference
keeps alert against self-regarding, grumpy and autocratic attitudes.
DADA HEALTHY in Patricia ´s definition is:
Patricia ´s Letter Exchange Play Rules
VISIONS PAIR WITH CONFESSIONS
ARE YOU ONE OF Patricia s NEXT LETTER PARTNERS?
no throwing one´ s weight around?
no urge to smooth things over?
celebrating deep dives into the controversies of human existence?
exploring each other beyond labels of social heritage and success?
“Each thing has its word, but the word has become a thing by itself. Why shouldn't I find it? Why can't a tree be called Pluplusch, and Pluplubasch when it has been raining? The word, the word, the word outside your domain, your stuffiness, this laughable impotence, your stupendous smugness, outside all the parrotry of your self-evident limitedness. The word, gentlemen, is a public concern of the first importance.“
HUGO BALL in the Dada Manifesto of 1916
