Destroy libraries and make books out of metal! The Italian Futurists in Word and Deed: Presented by Chris Filstrup
In 1909 Filippo Marinetti wrote a call to action to modernize Italy by destroying its cultural institutions, including libraries. Marinetti and his many followers, known as Futurists, embraced industrial technologies, used anti-feminist rhetoric, and glorified war. This talk will situate them in the history of libraries and books.
