The Futurist Manifesto

We all know that Nowism is the new movement in town. But sometimes, it’s a good idea to look back at what’s been said and done in the past. The Futurist Manifesto, written in 1909 by Marinetti, contains some admittedly eloquent passages that accurately portray the tone and character of the movement:

Beauty exists only in struggle. There is no masterpiece that has not an aggressive character. Poetry must be a violent assault on the forces of the unknown, to force them to bow before man.

  1. It’s interesting to read the manifesto. Futurism had a lot of potential but the only art movement that has truly achieved what it set out do (and much more) is Nowism.
