Futurism (1909-1914 (16)) originated as a literary movement in Milan, Italy by Fillippo Tommaso Marinetti and fellow Futurists who believed that theirs was a truthful art. Their work was aggressive; it represented movement, change and dynamism in present terms. The Futurists, inspired by industry and the machine age, were pro-war with a militantly stated program of action in their manifesto. They loved speedy automobiles and living dangerously. Performance art, which the Futurists originated, fit their temperament perfectly!
