Speakers engage with various forms of Futurist art, performance and film, including the use of manifestos and demonstrations.

The Futurists’ disdain for traditional values and their pursuit of an ‘art of modern life’ will be explored in relation to prevailing concepts of modernity and ‘avant-garde’ utopias.
