Futurism began with the 1909 publication of F.T. Marinetti’s Futurist Manifesto, which announced a new literature that would glorify danger, energy, and war. While best known for a dynamic style in painting and sculpture that captured speed and movement as if in time-lapse, Futurist artists created “total works of art” (performance, installation, fashion, and more). Though many leading Futurists died in World War I, a “second Futurism” followed, which allied itself with the fascist politics of Mussolini.
