One Hundred Years of Futurism : Aesthetics, Politics and Performance, Hardback Book

One Hundred Years of Futurism : Aesthetics, Politics and Performance Hardback

Edited by John London

Description

More than one hundred years after Futurism exploded onto the European stage with its unique brand of art and literature, there is a need to reassess the whole movement, from its Italian roots to its international ramifications.

In wide-ranging essays based on fresh research, the contributors to this collection examine both the original context and the cultural legacy of Futurism.

Chapters touch on topics such as Futurism and Fascism, the geopolitics of Futurism, the Futurist woman, and translating Futurist texts.

A large portion of the book is devoted to the practical aspects of performing Futurist theatrical ideas in the twenty-first century.
