This paper examines Mykhail Semenko's Futurist manifestos that developed an opposition between "national" and "international" art, and specifically called "national" art provincial and retrograde. In promoting the international European avant-garde, Semenko's essays demonstrate how consistently he championed a contemporary and modern Ukrainian culture in the face of home-grown conservatism.
