Thoughts on the Futurist Manifesto Futurism was an International art movement founded in 1909 in Italy. Futurists loved speed,machines,pollution and noise. The movement was a refreshing contrast to the sentimental side of Romanticism. Out of fear, they attacked technology,embracing the new world with excitement rather than enjoying what the modern world had to offer like the comforts. The Futurist manifesto tend to expose an art that touched almost all aspects of a persons daily life.
In The Foundation and Manifesto of the Futurism,Filippo Marinetti (4) highlights the key ideas behind the Futurist movement as he was an initiator in the movement. Marinetti started the manifesto by describing the new versus the old. He (6) personifies various places and machines in the new age period and compares them with the old ones. In one of his comments in the book,he states that the “the old ways of thinking are gone,defeated at last”. He (12) gave an example of condemning all museums and academies and comparing them with cemeteries that are not worth focusing on. Indeed Marinettis manifesto was very much anarchistic. Moreover,he encouraged dangerous methods to achieve beauty as he believed that there was no struggle without beauty.
In addition,he This shows how Marinettis words were, indeed very forceful. Marinetti along with other artists(22) around him wrote about literature, music, dance, performance, paintings and architecture. All that reiterated a cognate of ideas which reverberated through the multitudes of all forms of art expression in the 20th century(26). His projection of words in his book is like a machine gun in action of firing bullets. I can clarify his writing technique as both visual and sonic. The techniques blur the borderline dimension in which a synesthesia is evoked,making a more pro-founding impact on the Italian people.
The separation of the the futurism movement from the previous art movement is the focus on outward understanding. That is what Marinetti movement was all about. Therefore, people who view his work should understand the benefit of external factors in life like struggle and revolution without forgetting the internal factors .
