it's ironic that most duchamp enthusiasts spout endless streams of bourgeois rhetoric while regurgitating the truest duchamp given: the fact that duchamp had nothing but contempt for bourgeois attitudes. in a nutshell, bullshit! contradictory as he was, duchamp despised pretension. i can't imagine he'd respect your article, not to mention the hot-winded tone of the "tout-fait" website itself.

The fact that Tout-Fait offers multiple venues allowing the public to express opinion has shown its commitment to public sharing. I thus don't see how "bourgeois attitudes" would fall into the category, especially as the journal accepts submissions from acclaimed intellectuals, young scholars, and students alike. This is an age when knowledge and existing scholarship is subject to much needed examination and rethinking. By that, perhaps mm should regurgitate the true meaning and use of "bourgeois rhetoric" and do more homework on his grammar. And, be a sport, I'd appreciate a full name.

I am wondering why Marcel Duchamp named his famous (or infamous) painting, "Nude Descending a Staircase No.2." Was there a "No. 1." Also, did Duchamp ever have the nickname "King" or sign any of his paintings "King"? Thanks Sally Stewart
