By Eugene Ostashevsky on January 29, 2008
Format: Paperback
_Futurist Manifestos_ is an extremely important and useful book, a must for anyone interested in early-twentieth-century avant-garde. In Italian Futurism, theory and practice went hand-in-hand rather like they once did in physics, with the artists considering their, say, painting as an experimental ground for testing and developing their theories not just about painting, but about the world. Understanding the ontologies and desires of the movement completely changes the way you look at Futurist art, gives you the keys to it, as it were. Actually, it changes the way you look at all of early-twentieth-century avant-garde practice, the whole fifth floor of the MoMA. It's not the first book on Futurism that I read, but it certainly packs the most punch, despite the fact that some of the artists' prose can frustrate, bore, etc.; and it takes an effort to grasp what they're talking about.

And what they're talking about is the nature of reality. The reality that the Futurists want to portray is not the visual reality that is usually incriminated by the term "realism," but reality that is a) scientific and b) phenomenological. Thus, for example, instead of regarding painting as a representation of a three-dimensional world on a two-dimensional surface, Futurist painting wishes to express all dimensions--sounds, smell, brightness, etc. Instead of representing a moment of the world flux or, as they say, universal dynamism, they wish to express "the dynamic sensation itself"--basically, the world flux as it appears in the mind--and world objects as subjects of motion. "A horse in movement," writes Boccioni, "is not a motionless horse which is moving, but a horse in movement, which makes it another sort of thing altogether.

Format: Paperback
This book completely leaves out their political writings. If you want to learn about their artistic beliefs it's a good book, but it has none of their (important) political writings.
