On Dicta 1


Dicta 1 is a Dadaist work, an at times incomprehensible repetition of authoritative speech. The starting point of Dicta 1 was a conceptual contemplation on the word ‘dicta’, which is the plural of ‘dictum’ (a formal pronouncement from an authoritative source or a short statement expressing a general truth or principle). Dicta 1 is a performed discourse simulating the voice of authority and at the same time its failure.
