Bruno Munari: My Futurist PastBruno Munari: My Futurist Past

Published by Silvana Editorale.
Edited by Miroslava Hajek, Luca Zaffarano. Text by Pierpaolo Antonello, Jeffrey Schnapp.

Artist, graphic designer and polymath extraordinaire, Bruno Munari (1907–1998) first found fame as a member of F.T. Marinetti’s Futurist group in the late 1920s. His earliest paintings and drawings show the influence of comrades such as Boccioni and Balla, but even at this time, Munari’s art drew on a much more diverse range of avant-garde idioms, from Constructivism to Dada and Surrealism, as his collages and photomontages indicate. The aspirations of these movements to transform everyday life inspired Munari to work across a range of media and disciplines, from painting and photomontage to sculpture, graphics, film and art theory. For the first time, My Futurist Past documents the full richness of Munari’s playful, irreverent and endlessly creative career, from the artistic research of his Futurist phase and early investigation of the possibilities of kinetic sculpture--the first “mobiles” in the history of Italian art--to the immediate postwar years during which he became a leading figure of abstract painting, and his subsequent experiments with projected light and installation-based work (reflecting his belief that technological advances only expanded the artist’s expressive vocabulary). The catalogue includes 280 reproductions in color alongside scholarly texts, and reveals Munari as one of the most complex, creative and multifaceted figures of twentieth-century Italian art.

Bruno Munari: Drawing A TreeBruno Munari: Drawing A Tree

Published by Edizioni Corraini.
Artwork by Bruno Munari.

The books in the new workshop series describe different methods of learning, from educational activities to explanatory pamphlets to poetic play. The illuminating, gentle genius of the Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari (1907-1998) offers basic instructions and plenty of stimuli, suggestions and illustrative pictures to get adults and children, teachers and students working together. These three books, the first in the series, are classics from the hand of a magician. For drawing a tree, Munari suggests: “When drawing a tree, always remember that every branch is more slender than the one that came before. Also note that the trunk splits into two branches, then those branches split in two, then those in two, and so on, and so on, until you have a full tree, be it straight, squiggly, curved up, curved down, or bent sideways by the wind.”

The illuminating, gentle genius of the Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari (1907-1998) offers basic instructions and plenty of stimuli, suggestions and illustrative pictures to get adults and children, teachers and students working together. In Drawing the Sun, Munari suggests: “When drawing the sun, try to have on hand colored paper, chalk, felt-tip markers, crayons, pencils, ballpoint pens--you can draw a sun with any one of them. Also remember that sunset and dawn are the back and front of the same phenomenon: when we are looking at the sunset, the people over there are looking at the dawn.”

The illuminating, gentle genius of the Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari (1907-1998) offers basic instructions and plenty of stimuli, suggestions and illustrative pictures to get adults and children, teachers and students working together. In this volume, Munari shows us how to make imaginative artistic use of all kinds of vegetables to make fun stamps from: “Never mind potatoes. Using a radicchio stalk as a stamp (all it takes is a knife for cutting and an ink pad for coloring), one can discover the flowers in the vegetable garden. And then there are irises, peppers, cabbages, brussels sprouts, tomatoes (only very firm ones are recommended), lettuces, and so on.”
