Futurism in Spain: Research Trends and Recent Contributions

Andrew A. Anderson


This essay aims to chart how the subject of Futurism in/and Spain has been approached over the years, to delineate how the subject has come to be configured into a number of sub-categories, and to provide a survey of scholarly publications, concentrating on those that have appeared in the last ten to fifteen years. The most notable sub-categories include: general broad introductions; Gabriel Alomar and El futurisme; Ramon Gomez de la Serna and Prometeo; the Catalan historical avant-garde; the Ultra movement; and Marinetti’s 1928 visit to Spain and Spagna veloce e toro futurista. The essay is rounded off with a ‘Coda’ reviewing some of the more substantial studies concerned with Latin America. With a few notable exceptions, research and scholarship on this general topic that has been produced and published in the twenty-first century has not, unfortunately, made significant strides over the state of knowledge as of circa 2000.
