    Hi. I'm an art student that is really confused by a few sentences from the old Dadaist disgust. This is what they say. What do they mean?

    "Dada; knowledge of all means rejected up until now by the shamefaced sex of comfortable compromise and good manners.
    Dada; abolition of all logic, which is the dance of those impotent to create."

    Very Dada!

    Both are implying that conservative views and mainstream ideas [comfortable compromise and good manners] are facile and typical of people with low creativity or artistic merit [those impotent to create].
