The former director of South Korea's National Museum of Contemporary Art, Kim Yoon-soo, has been ruled innocent of what the government claimed was wrongful conduct in the purchase of a copy of Duchamp's Boite-en-valise. Kim reportedly sent a broker a conditional memorandum of understanding that he wanted to buy the miniature compendium of some of Duchamp's most famous works; an incoming cabinet minister seems to have seized the chance to purge appointees of the previous administration.

Kim, 74, receives about $73,000 in back pay and the restoration of his reputation. Unfortunately, the miniature museum itself does not appear to be represented on the museum's site at this time.
