Sowas kommt dabei heraus, wenn man vintage Futurism, Netzkultur und Avant Garde mischt. And… I have no idea. Von Lagughing Squid: „For a fine glaze of irony, the historical art movement in question is named Futurism, and one of its fundamental tenets is utter disdain for everything in the past, especially the art of the past. They would be so pissed at you for watching this!“
Otto vs. the Italian Futurists. A remake of a scene from the lost Futurist omnibus film "Vita Futurista" (1916).
Created for "Futurist Life Redux" (2009), a Performa Commission with SFMOMA and Portland Green Cultural Projects
Original Synopsis (1916): Death (Chiti) comes for Cecco Beppe wearing black clothing with a white skeleton painted on top of it, so that, against the black background, he appears to be a floating mass of bones. But Beppe has a very bad odor--Death cannot stand it and collapses, allowing his victim to live on. This section was never actually shown with the rest of "Vita Futurista," because it was censored by the Italian Ministry of the Interior.
