    When are these from? I assume that these are from well past Futurism’s pre-WWI prime since there’s a reference to Surrealism in there. Is this Marinetti setting out how Futurism should be historicized?

    George Maciunias, the head of Fluxus, also made a lot of weirdly similar charts explaining the history of art movements to the 1970s or so; there was a big show of these at Maya Stendhal a couple years back, but I can’t seem to find any on the web. There are suggestions of them here:

    but those aren’t quite the ones I’m thinking of . . .
