The Art/Life RevolutionStreaming Video - 2013
ollowing an automobile accident in the Milanese countryside, poet Filippo Marinetti experienced a form of artistic catharsis. He quickly founded the Futurist movement, shunning all ties to tradition and embracing the dynamic technological landscape of a brand new century. Marinetti and his entourage also became associated with violence, misogyny, and Fascism, and as a result Futurism now resides along an isolated thread within the vibrant tapestry of 20th century art, design, theatre, and literature. But it is precisely because of its anomalous place in the canon that Futurism offers so many intriguing opportunities for study. This program combines vivid dramatizations, forceful voice-overs of Marinetti's writings, and a wealth of archival material as it tells the story of Futurism and its problematic cultural legacy. Interviews with numerous critics and scholars are also included.
