Catalogue The Futurist Universe. 1909 – 1936
March 30, 2010
The Futurist Universe. 1909 – 1936 book collects an essential group of manifestos, documents and theoretical texts in Spanish with more than 200 images that show the multidisciplinary character of the Futurist movement: visual arts, literature, architecture, cinema, photography, theatre, dance and fashion.
Gabriella Belli, art historian and curator of the exhibition, presents her essay “Protagonists and events from Italian Futurism” unveiling the most significant events and the artists involved in each discipline that gave Futurism its personality and importance. A documentary section presents thirteen rigorously translated Futurist manifestos, which helps in the understanding of the revolt, the struggle, the will to invent and the constructive utopia for a new society, from the voices of the artists themselves.
Marinetti and Bragaglia’s visits to Buenos Aires are retold by investigator Cecilia Rabossi. Through the selected testimonies, she establishes a chronology in the format of a travel journal that triggers a reflection upon the repercussions and contradictions that this visits aroused in the Buenos Aires’ artistic field of the 20s and 30s,
The illustrations of the most relevant works of the movement enrich this edition making it a key Spanish written contribution to understanding Futurism. This book is the chronicle of a movement “lacking past and deprived from tradition” that despite it all managed to mark an era.
