DADA has a presence as complex and pressing today as it was over a century ago. But at the core of it all is nihilism: DADA signifies nothing. Whereas Dada was the will to difference via destruction, alt-right dank memers adopted the same techniques but with a different ethos: the will to deception via destruction. What does this mean if we want to make sense out of being a subject in the early twenty-first century where meaning seems to be lost?
