Product Description

From the Back Cover

Marcel Duchamp, one of this century's pioneer artists, moved his work through the retinal boundaries which had been established with Impressionism into a field where language, thought and vision act upon one another. There it changed form through a complex interplay of new mental and visual details to be found in more recent art.

About the Author

, historien et critique d'art, auteur de nombreux ouvrages consacres a l'art dont plusieurs monographies sur "Rembrandt" (Le Chene- 1991) V"ermeer" (Terrail 2004) et "Van Gogh" (Terrail 2006)

Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) was, with Picasso, the most important artist of the 20th century. Father of conceptual art, he was also a bemused participant in the Dada and Surrealist movecments, and--via the infamous display of his 1912 "Nude Descending a Staircase" at the Armory Show in New York--the instigator of modernism in America.

Format: Paperback
This interview with Marcel Duchamp by Pierre Cabanne provides clarity to the myth that surrounds Duchamp and his non art. Duchamp gave the interview about 2 years before his death. He answers directly and in context the meaning of his work and non work. Others books attempt to tell us not only what his production means but try to tell us what his words mean as well. This books makes clear that Duchamp did not like the art world (although he used it to his advantage), he did not like art that appealed to the eye, he did not make art, he amused himself making objects and he played games. Its an honest interview and needs no interpreters. You can understand the valve of this mans ideas and what they mean to current conceptual art. Or is it conceptual non art.

Most comprehensive interview with Duchamp - be warned he states many evasive things, like claiming not to think! Still a great first look into this modern master.

It was surprising to discover that Duchamp wasn't interesting at all. He had nothing to say.
