DADA & Modernist Magazines


cover Noi Noi, an international review of avant-garde art, was published in Rome between 1917 and 1925. Founded, edited, and designed by Enrico Prampolini, its coverage included all the major avant-garde movements of the period and contributors ranged from the Futurists and De Chirico to Tristan Tzara, Pierre Reverdy, Stravinsky, and Lord Berners. This special issue is dedicated to the work of Balla, Depero, and Prampolini who, in 1925, represented Italy at the international Art Deco exhibition in Paris. This illustration shows an architectural model for a 'Magnetic theatre' by Prampolini whose abstract stage designs won him the Grand Prix d'art théatral.
