Protocols Page

In June 2009 the department of History & Theory at the Bezalel academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem, celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first Futurist manifesto with an international conference, from which stemmed this monographic issue of Bezalel journal History & Theory: the Protocols dedicated to the Futurist movement. This issue seeks to present the reader with a current and original selection of academic papers and essays which explore from different perspectives three key aspects of the Futurist Movement: its significance in early 20th century Italy, its international spread and influence, and its presence in current political and artistic discourses.
