Speed and revolution. New ways to transport, build, dress or express yourself. The artistic movement of the Italian Futurism aimed to destroy the old and to design a truly modern society. Instead of presenting static paintings the artists gave dramatic performances in which smells played an important role.
Art historian Caro Verbeek MA (VU) tells about this revolutionary movement and lets you sniff it. In cooperation with Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Alembic and Daedalus.
Moderator: Hiska Bakker MA (Studium Generale).
Thursday 26 November , 19.30-21.00 hours, Vrijhof
