On February 20, 1909, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti (1876–1944) published his Futuristic Manifesto in the daily newspaper Le Figaro, Paris, and thus founded the avant-garde art movement of Futurism. The words of the young writer triggered a revolution, for his demands met a longing for radical renewal in art. Futurism declared war on familiar cult objects of the past and demanded comprehensive changes in all the arts; painting and poetry, literature, and photography, theatre, design and music. New everyday aesthetics were to be created through the participation of every art form. Sprachen des Futurismus describes the full diversity of artistic expression in Futurism, so offering an opportunity to find out about those aspects of the movement that are less well known than painting, such as Carrà, Severini, Russolo, and Balla.
