BLAST was the short-lived literary magazine of the Vorticist movement in Britain. It had two editions, the first published on 2 July 1914... the magazine has become famous as emblematic of the first modern art movement in England and is now recognised as one of the seminal texts of 20th-century modernism. The magazine originally cost 2/6.
Vorticism... is more closely related to Futurism in its embrace of dynamism, the machine age and all things modern.
When Wyndham Lewis returned from the trenches, he hoped to revivify the Vorticist spirit (under the name Group X), planning a third issue of Blast and regaining contact with old allies. But the whole context of pre-war experimentation had been dispersed by the destructive power of mechanized warfare, which persuaded most of the former Vorticists to pursue more representational directions thereafter. By 1920 even Lewis was obliged to admit that the movement was dead. (ME: ALSO, CORE VORTICISTS WERE UNHELPFULLY DEAD)
