FOTODINAMISMO 100! BRAGAGLIA, BOCCIONI, BERGSON AND PROBLEMS OF FUTURISTIC PHOTOGRAPHY
Languages of publication
The article was intended for the hundredth anniversary of the experiment of photo-dynamism, recognised as the first symptom of avant-garde photography. The Bragaglia brothers, residents of Rome, fascinated with the quests conducted by Italian Futurism, wanted to apply Futuristic ideas in the domain of photography – to bring forth in the photograph absolute motion expressing the truth about the dynamically changing world. Despite such a bold and revolutionary experiment their search was never accepted by Umberto Boccioni – the ideologue of Futuristic visual arts. Not until the 1930s, when photography (alongside the cinema) became the most important medium of avant-garde artistic works, photo-dynamism was fully rehabilitated by the Futurists as the first symptom of modern solutions in art.
