    • Rothman, Roger I.    01/01/02

    Ce qui est extraordinaire, c'est que malgré leurs audaces,l'un et l'autre souffraient d'un mal qu'il leur était difficilede préciser : une sorte de nostalgie de la forme objective,le regret du motif et de toutes les formules classiquesdont ils s'étaient peu à peu détachés.       — Gabrielle Buffet click

  • “Macaroni repaired is ready for Thursday….” Marcel Duchamp as Conservator

    • Pohlad, Mark B.    12/01/00

    "...while not as world-shaking as war, [Duchamp's art] certainly has outlived the latter. The survival of inanimate objects, of works of art through great upheavals, is one of my consolations.

    • Alfaro, Juan    12/01/00

    The danger is in pleasing an immediate public: the immediate public that comes around you and takes you in and accepts you and gives you success and everything. Instead of that, you should wait for fifty years or a hundred years for your true public. That is the only public that interests me. Marcel Duchamp It is the REGARDEURS who make the pictur

  • Pata or Quantum: Duchamp and the End of Determinist Physics

    • Yang, Shin-Yi    12/01/00

    The early 20th Century saw a breakdown, a deconstruction if you will, of the classical Enlightenment assertion that the world is fundamentally knowable to us. In the art and philosophy of the Enlightenment era, the rational capacity of the human mind to analyze and comprehend itself and the world was trusted implicitly. In science, the classical Ne
