in connection with a piece on CRASH, I am surveying various pre-fascist and
fascist art movements which were preoccupied with machinery. I have cited the
Italian futurists specifically. Does anyone know of any other movements,
artists, et cetera
that might be applicable? Especially, does anyone recall the English
Vorticists -- Wyndham Lewis, et al, as I remember -- and if this movement had
fascist leanings?
Collateral question. I recall that there was a prefascist movement of German
rightwing youth called the FREIKORPS, also have a vague memory that a writer
named Theiwilligkeit ??? wrote an overview of this organization. Also that
there have been references to the "armored male body" which came up in a
piece a while back about THE TERMINATOR and similar films.
Help on these issues greatly appreciated.
