In 1909, F.T. Marinetti published his incendiary "Futurist Manifesto", proclaiming 'We stand on the last promontory of the centuries!!' and 'There, on the earth, the earliest dawn!'. Intent on delivering Italy from 'its fetid cancer of professors, archaeologists, tour guides, and antiquarians', the Futurists imagined an art, architecture, literature and music that would function like a machine, transforming the world rather than merely reflecting it. But within a decade, Futurism's utopian ambitions were being wedded to Fascist politics, an alliance that would tragically mar its reputation in the century to follow. Published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Futurism, this is the most complete anthology of Futurist manifestos, poems, plays, and images ever to be published in English, spanning from 1909 to 1944. Now, amidst another era of unprecedented technological change and cultural crisis, is a pivotal moment to reevaluate Futurism and its haunting legacy for Western civilization.

In 1909 the poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti published the founding manifesto of Italian Futurism, an inflammatory celebration of 'the love of danger' and 'the beauty of speed' that provoked readers to take aggressive action and 'glorify war - the world's only hygiene'. Marinetti's words unleashed an influential artistic and political movement that has since been neglected owing to its exaltation of violence and nationalism, its overt manipulation of mass media channels, and its associations with Fascism. "Inventing Futurism" is a major reassessment of Futurism that reintegrates it into the history of twentieth-century avant-garde artistic movements.Countering the standard view of Futurism as naively bellicose, Christine Poggi argues that Futurist artists and writers were far more ambivalent in their responses to the shocks of industrial modernity than Marinetti's incendiary pronouncements would suggest. She closely examines Futurist literature, art, and politics within the broader context of Italian social history, revealing a surprisingly powerful undercurrent of anxiety among the Futurists - toward the accelerated rhythms of urban life, the rising influence of the masses, changing gender roles, and the destructiveness of war.Poggi traces the movement from its explosive beginnings through its transformations under Fascism to offer completely new insights into familiar Futurist themes, such as the thrill and trauma of velocity, the psychology of urban crowds, and the fantasy of flesh fused with metal, among others. Lavishly illustrated and unparalleled in scope, "Inventing Futurism" demonstrates that beneath Futurism's belligerent avant-garde posturing lay complex and contradictory attitudes toward an always - deferred utopian future.

The nineteenth century is central to contemporary discussions of visual culture. This reader brings together for the first time key writings about the period, exploring such topics as photographs, exhibitions and advertising. Suggesting that 'modernity' rather than 'modernism' is a valuable way of understanding the changes particular to the visual culture of the time, the editors investigate the variety of nineteenth-century imaes, technologies and visual experiences, stressing in particular the very consciousness of vision and visuality. The reader begins with three specially written essays about definitions of visual culture as an object of study. 'Genealogies' introduces key writings about culture from writers living in the nineteenth century itself or from those who scrutinized its visual culture from early in the twentieth century such as Walter Benjamin and Siegfried Kracauer. The remainder is organised around themes: technologies of vision, practices of display and the circulation of images, cities and the built environment, visual representations of the past, visual representations of catagories of racial, sexual and social differences, and spatial configurations of inside.

Hungarian art historian Eva Forgacs examines the development of the Bauhaus School of architecture and applied design by focusing on the idea of the Bauhaus, rather than its artefacts. She reinterprets that idea in the light of the antagonisms marring the first year of the German Republic.

This is the first scholarly anthology exclusively devoted to the art and art-critical theory of the twentieth century. It is designed to equip the student and teacher with the necessary materials for an up-to-date understanding of twentieth-century art at a time when current debates about the status of Modernism have led to an increasing interest in critical and aesthetic theories, and to a questioning of some of the traditional assumptions and limits of art history. Besides the writings of the century's major artists, Art in Theory includes relevant texts by critics, philosophers, politicians and literary figures. It is organized into eight sections, from the legacy of Symbolism at the turn of the century to contemporary debates about the Postmodern. Each section is prefaced by a brief essay. There are introductions for all of the 300-plus texts, which serve to place theories and critical approaches in context. The result is both a comprehensive collection of documents on twentieth century art and an encyclopaedic history of relevant theory.

Since it was first published in 1992, this book has become one of the leading anthologies of art theoretical texts in the English-speaking world. This expanded edition includes the fruits of recent research, involving a considerable amount of newly translated material from the entire period, together with additional texts from the last decades of the twentieth century.The features that made the first edition so successful have been retained:The volume provides comprehensive representation of the theories, which underpinned developments in the visual arts during the twentieth century.As well as writings by artists, the anthology includes texts by critics, philosophers, politicians and literary figures.The content is clearly structured into eight broadly chronological sections, starting with the legacy of symbolism and concluding with contemporary debates about the postmodern.The editors provide individual introductions to each of the 340 anthologised texts. Material new to this expanded edition includes texts on African art, on the Bauhaus and on the re-emergent avant-gardes of the period after the Second World War. Post-modernist debates are amplified by texts on gender, on installation and performance art, and on the increasing globalisation of culture.

In this ambitious book, Terry Smith chronicles the modernist revolution in American art and design between the world wars--from its origins in the new industrial age of mass production, automation, and corporate culture to its powerful and transforming effects on the way Americans came to see themselves and their world. From Ford Motor's first assembly line in 1913 to the New York World's Fair of 1939, Smith traces the evolution of visual imagery in the first half of America's century of progress.

Established in the belief that imperialism as a cultural phenomenon had as significant an effect on the dominant as it did on the subordinate societies, the "Studies in Imperialism" series seeks to develop the new socio-cultural approach which has emerged through cross-disciplinary work on popular culture, media studies, art history, the study of education and religion, sports history and children's literature. The cultural emphasis embraces studies of migration and race, while the older political, and constitutional, economic and military concerns are never far away. It incorporates comparative work on European and American empire-building, with the chronological focus primarily, though not exclusively, on the 19th and 20th centuries, when these cultural exchanges were most powerfully at work.

The publication of 'Vision and Difference' marked a milestone in the development of modern art history. Its introduction of a feminist perspective into this largely male-oriented discipline made shockwaves that are still felt forcefully today. Drawing upon feminist cultural theory previously little applied to the visual arts, Griselda Pollock offers concrete historical analyses of key moments in the formation of modern culture to reveal the sexual politics at the heart of modernist art. Crucially, she not only provides a feminist re-reading of the work of canonical male Impressionist and Pre-Raphaelite artists including Edgar Degas and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, but also re-inserts into art history their female contemporaries - women artists such as Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt. Casting her critical eye over the contemporary art scene, Pollock discusses the work of women artists such as Mary Kelly and Yve Lomax, highlighting the problems of working in a culture where the feminine is still defined as the object of the male gaze. Now published with a new introduction by Griselda Pollock, 'Vision and Difference' remains as powerful and as essential reading as ever for all those seeking not only to understand the history of the feminine in art but also to develop new strategies for representation for the future.
