About this product
- DescriptionThis is a work that dramatises the turbulent life and times of F T Marinetti, founder of Futurism, the first global art movement. Marinetti's artistic career raises enduring questions about art and politics because of his association with Fascism, and the second part of this work is an essay which explores the implications of this association. What makes this text unique is that it is the first work that assesses Marinetti's life in the context of a command performance he gave for the German High Command in January 1934 -- and the spectacular conclusion to that performance.
