Automobile adorned with great pipes like serpents with explosive breath...is more beautiful than the Victory of Samothrace.
The Futurists, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti - Manifesto of Futurism
We declare...that all forms of imitation must be despised, all forms of originality glorified... that all subjects previously used must be swept aside in order to express our whirling life of steel, of pride, of fever, and of speed... that movement and light destroy the materiality of bodies.
Marinetti, Carra, Boccioni and Russolo, 1912, The Futurist Manifesto
Mexico es el pais surrealista por excelencia. (Mexico is the most excellent of surrealist countries)
I am for an art that is political-erotic-mystical, that does something else than sit on its ass in a museum.
