Filippo Tommaso Marinetti – Het futuristisch manifest (Engelse vertaling) « Outre Meuse

No work without an aggressive character futuristisch manifest be a masterpiece. Poetry must be conceived as a violent attack on unknown forces, to reduce and prostrate them before man. We stand on the last promontory of the centuries! Why should we look back, when what we want is to break down the mysterious doors of the Impossible?

Time futuristisch manifest Space died yesterday.


We already live in the absolute, because we have created eternal, omnipresent speed. We will destroy the museums, libraries, academies of futuristisch manifest kind, will fight moralism, feminism, every opportunistic or utilitarian cowardice. We will sing of great crowds excited by work, by pleasure, and by riot; we will sing of the multicolored, polyphonic tides of revolution in the modern capitals; we will sing of the vibrant nightly fervor of arsenals and shipyards blazing with violent electric moons; greedy railway stations that devour smoke-plumed serpents; factories hung on clouds by the crooked lines of their smoke; bridges that stride the rivers like giant gymnasts, flashing in the sun with a glitter of knives; adventurous steamers that sniff the horizon; deep-chested locomotives whose wheels paw the tracks like the hooves futuristisch manifest enormous steel horses bridled by tubing; and the sleek flight of planes whose propellers chatter in the wind like banners and seem to cheer like an enthusiastic crowd.

It is from Italy that we launch through the world futuristisch manifest violently upsetting incendiary manifesto of ours. With it, today, we establish Futurism, because we want to free this land futuristisch manifest its smelly gangrene of professors, archaeologists, ciceroni and antiquarians.

That once a year one should futuristisch manifest a floral tribute beneath the Gioconda, I grant you that And what is there to see in an old picture except the laborious contortions of an artist throwing himself against the barriers that thwart his desire to express his dream completely?

Admiring an old picture is the same as futuristisch manifest our sensibility into a funerary urn instead of hurtling it far off, in violent spasms of action and creation.

Do you, then, wish to waste all your best powers in this futuristisch manifest and futile worship of the past, from which you emerge fatally exhausted, shrunken, beaten down?

The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism

Futuristisch manifest truth I tell you that daily visits to museums, libraries, and academies cemeteries of empty exertion, Calvaries of crucified dreams, registries of aborted beginnings!

When the future is barred to them, the admirable past may be a solace for the futuristisch manifest of the moribund, the sickly, the prisoner But we want no part of it, the past, we the young and strong Futurists!

So let them come, the gay incendiaries with charred fingers!

Turn futuristisch manifest the canals to flood the museums! Oh, the joy of seeing the glorious old canvases bobbing adrift on those waters, discolored and shredded! Take up your pickaxes, your axes and hammers and wreck, wreck the venerable cities, pitilessly!
