Italian Futurism 1909-1919
'Come then good incendiaries! Set fire to the shelves of the libraries. Deviate the course of canals. Flood the cellars of the museums. For art can be nothing but violence, cruelty and injustice.'
One of many manifestos from F. T. Marinetti, leader of the Italian Futurist movement which was a deliberately organised revolt against 19th-century Romanticism. The Futurists revelled in speed and dynamism, seeking to destroy all remnants of tradition. Tonight, Full House with JOHN BENNETT, JACK SHEPHERD and GEORGIA BROWN and illustrations of the work of the movement's artists, recreates a futurist theatrical evening. Ideally these sessions ended in audience riot.
