Three Rooms Press’ ongoing MAINTENANT contemporary dada journal series.
We all like “We Are All A ‘Like.'” Socially speaking, “like” has reacted to events, people, images. How this judgement of compulsory positivism is turning all of us into liars is a new disease that we are adding to the DSM.
MAINTENANT 12 features provocative cover art by artist Nicole Eisenman, and the work of nearly 200 artists and writers from six continents.

What is a crossroads in history? Are literary genres signposts at these crossroads? What does the future require of the past? We will explore these questions in the context of literature in the age of rapidly evolving artificial intelligence. The future is here, using the resources of our language and bodies to increase its velocity. THE FUTURE IS A VAMPIRE.

From Andrei's most recent work: flat is dead
New Orleans late night zen pickup reroutes me gently above molly's where a motley crew of gutter-punks are drawing cross-legged on the tilted floor, writing with colored chalk on blackboard walls, making paper birds and rag dolls to place in uneven boxes nailed to the same walls, lying down on the hardwood floors reading. their dogs, mostly rottweilers, but also german shepherds and dachsunds, lie quietly beside their busy owners, some of them chained to tattooed arms. It's 4 am in the French Quarter. It's not flat.
Louise Nevelson rumbles up a hill watching cows come home tired at dusk their dull bells fading. She watches them walk into their stalls below the people they keep warm at night. Their bellies are full. They watch some TV. Then in the frozen morning she hears the ice crunching under the boots of sleepy children coming to milk them. They leave with sloshing buckets of milk and walk into the warm kitchen where the fireplace is already blazing and the bacon is sizzling. The pancakes turn like Bucharest girls at a Black Sea beach, brown on one side, still white on the other. Louise is in her studio making models of cows, girls, and pancakes. The bucolic and the modern fit when they go home to their coffins. This is the past. It isn’t flat. —from flat is dead
