Breaking the Rules - London

On display, at the British Library, and certainly an influence that will seep into fashion and style, are extraordinary examples of the movement that brought us FuturISM, CubISM, DadaISM, SurrealISM, VorticISM, ExpressionISM. A comprehensive, and compelling collection of magazines, journals, books and newspapers that were published from 1900-1937, were the showcase for the ideals driving these movements. European photographers, artists, writers, composers, philosophers, graphic artists and illustrators, collaborated, expressing the avant-garde movement that was a revolutionary departure from the establishment, drawing a line between who's good and who's bad, who's the future and who's the past.
