This is the first-ever English language anthology of zenithism, an eclectic avant-garde movement unique to the Yugoslav region that existed 1921-1927. Zenithism's founder Ljubomir Micic envisioned the movement as a fusion of futurism, dada, constructivism, expressionism, and proto-surrealism, driven by what he called the "barbarogenius." A hallmark of the movement was its embrace of cross-genre writing, from Ljubomir Micic's ciné-poem Rescue Vehicle and Branko Ve Poljanski's lyric novel 77 Suicides to MID's lyric philosophic treatise The Sexual Equilibrium of Money. The zenithists promoted their ideas through their journal Zenit and press Biblioteka Zenit. Reaching American readers for the first time, this anthology sheds light on an untapped chapter in European modernism ideal for the general and academic reader alike.
