Manifesto of Futurist Woman (Let's Conclude)

Manifesto_of_Futurist_Women_(Let's_Conclude).jpg

Sadly, I have been unable to find an online video of Anetta Mona Chisa & Lucia Tkacova's conceptual piece, Manifesto of Futurist Woman (Let's Conclude) (2008).

I will have to make do with my imagination.

Manifest of Futurist Woman (Let's Conclude) depicts a group of majorettes marching across an urban space, apparently performing a generic choreography. ... The message performed by the majorettes in the video is the concluding part of Manifesto della donna futurista, written in 1912 by the French poet, playwright and performance artist Valentine de Saint-Point as a response to Marinetti's infamous call, in the 1909 Manifesto del Futurismo, for the 'scorn of woman'.
