A new, expansive study on Futurism which explores for the first time its relationships with other European avant-gardes during 1912 to 1939

Futurism was originally an Italian movement established in 1909 that strived for a radical rejuvenation of culture, not just in art but in all aspects of life. The concept of a new, all-encompassing aesthetic found its way to large parts of Europe and had a great influence on other avant-garde movements, something which has never before been fully explored.

Futurism and Europe: The Aesthetics of a New World examines for the first time the many interconnections between Futurism and other European avant-gardes such as De Stijl, Bauhaus, Esprit Nouveau, and Russian Constructivism. Featuring a wide range of works, the book spans multiple mediums including painting, sculpture, architecture, interior and stage designs, graphic work and fashion as well as a variety of functional objects from furniture and carpets to design books, ceramics, and puppets. Covering various avant-gardes from 1912 to 1939, artists featured include Italian futurists, such as Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Fortunato Depero, Antonio Sant 'Elia and Enrico Prampolini, alongside other European artists Sonia Delaunay, Le Corbusier, Fernand Léger, Walter Gropius, Oskar Schlemmer, El-Lissitsky, Alexander Rodchenko, Theo van Doesburg, Gerrit Rietveld, Fritz Lang, Paul Citroen, Lázló Moholy-Nagy, Wassily Kandinsky, Hans Arp, Duncan Grant, Kazimir Malevich, and Vladimir Tatlin
