Towards the end of 2005, the artist Miltos Manetas approached us to design a monograph about his work. We came up with a pretty basic lay-out, a grid that could accommodate all his material: paintings, videos, manifestos, essays, etc. As a title, we thought up 'Marx & Marinetti & Miltos & Manetas'. We know Miltos as a real agitator, always writing manifestos and starting movements (Neen, Telic, 444, etc.). Miltos perfectly fits the image of the classic Futurist: European, radical, militant. So we thought it made sense to place him in the company of two other arch-modernists: Karl Marx, and F.T. Marinetti. The cover is a time-line: from Marx to Manetas, via Marinetti.
