 +==PREFACE==
 +
 +The year of 2009 is marked a hundreds’ anniversary of the publication of celebrated [[http://​www.cscs.umich.edu/​~crshalizi/​T4PM/​futurist-manifesto.html|Futurist Manifesto]] by [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Filippo_Tommaso_Marinetti|Filippo Tommaso Marinetti]] in Pariser Le Figaro magazine. Its reception – along with the one of his very persona – happened to be contradictional in both perception of those times and caused discussions on Marinetti'​s belonging to left-wingers or right-wingers up to nowadays. ​
 + 
 +Whereas his ideas have initially been considered a certain call for liberation and freedom, the same energy (alternated from even inside?) led to a sort of totalitarian philosophy with concept of War proclaimed of finest expression of human'​s naturality and violence crowning on the top of civil values.
 + 
 +In Russia, Marinetti particular publicity was due to his - as well as his ideas - acceptance by such figures as **David Burljuk**, [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Vladimir_Mayakovsky|Vladimir Majakovski]] and other [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Russian_Futurism|Russian cubofuturists]] and has initially received a hundred percent leftist understanding. ​
 +However, as Marinetti transformed to a fascist ideologist who then supported the Mussolini regime his visions met certain seizure which followed his name being deleted from literary studies in Soviet Russia. ​        
 +
 +**Enduring Futurism** is a project that brings together a number of contemporary Russian artists and intellectuals - allowing for [[artists:​Bernd Brincken]] of Germany and [[artists:​Giovanni de Dona]] of Italy - whose opuses are pointed at themes of war, (power of) rhythm, pattern, (cult of) future and prognostication. ​    
 +
 +**Enduring Futurism** highlights the fact of concrete relations historically grown between two movements and that have got a certain historical impact on the understanding of the above-mentioned issues in the modern era.    ​
 +Thus, this exhibition accompanied with a series of presentations and publications is meant to be a kind of living descent to the Italian soil and the other link to historical events and huge Russian reception, the biggest ever in the world of this Italian-born philosophy.
