An important collection of essays by the art critic and theorist Itagaki Takao (1894-1966) advocating modernist trends in general and the aesthetics of the machine in particular. Itagaki had spent time in Europe and was influenced by the visual language of the German New Objectivity (Neue Sachlichkeit, the name of an exhibition in Mannheim in 1925) movement represented by the likes of Dix, Schad, and Grosz. This movement had a strong political content and often identified with socialist aims. The cover of 'Aspects of Artistic Modernity' shows a collage of European Communist publications photographed by Horino Masao who was strongly influenced by Itagaki and worked with him on several projects. Only two copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
