Another, larger linocut. I'm still working on my techniques, which is why the colouring did not turn out as evenly as I intended (in all of the prints).
"Futurism" was a movement that originated in the italian art world prior to world war I. Its representatives regarded the subjects of movement, acceleration, swiftness, and speed as the highest values, and eventually came to see the idea of war not as destructive, but cathartic and even creative. The fascination with acceleration and destruction found its toxic climax of course in the first world war, but continued even after it. It's ideas and values were then taken up by Mussolini and formed the core of the fascist movement.
(Needless to say but worth mentioning, I do not have a high opinion of this set of ideas)
