• On Readymades by/of Marcel Duchamp

    • Bender, Evan    12/01/07

    It is with great interest that I have been reading Rhonda Shearer's investigative work on Duchamp's readymades. Her analysis seems thorough and her approach scientific. But the "revelation" that some of the readymades may not have actually been ready-made, that is, ordinary commercial objects simply selected by the artist, does not seem lik

    Chers Messieurs: I wish to express my astonishment at reading the article you posted: "Femalic Molds" by Jean Clair (translation by Taylor M. Stapleton). Originally published in 2000, which translation you published in 2003. Of course, I am aware of the interest in the fourth dimension of the Modernists, particularly with reference to Salvador Dali

    I am currently studying for my BFA (Visual Arts) after having a very prestigious previous career as an academic in a very different disciplinary area (I have held three Chairs which I think translate to Full Professor in the USA). My background as a senior researcher has made me extremely skeptical of online journals. What an absolute pleasure to f

  • Advertising Theory: "Branding" and Duchamp’s Productions

    • Artamendi, Felix Guerenabarrena    12/01/05

    I have always been fascinated by Duchamp´s creative production. As I am working as Business Consultant I have developed some ideas concerning Duchamp´s production and my Branding theories. If someone was interested in this material I would love to be in touch with her/him. My thought from Tom Peter's Brand Cafe.... Marcel Duchamp and Branding

    "The factor in the comfort of the fork, its springiness or compliance,the degree to which it will bend in response to a bump in the road, is the horizontal displacement of the fork tips from the straight line passing through the head tube. A curved fork and a straight fork with the same position of fork tips will have about the same compliance."

    • Kline, Douglas    04/01/03

    ”Straight forks were used on highwheelers as well as boneshakers. A curved fork does somewhat smooth the ride, because it is springier than a straight fork -- however, its effect in smoothing the ride is much less than the effect of the pneumatic tires or the highwheeler's large front wheel. The factor in the comfort of the fork, its s

He thinks Duchamp appears in a postcard sent from Duchamp to Katherine Dreier (Fig. 1). There are 2 men behind the Duchamp figure that look an awful lot like Man Ray and Andre Breton. At least in

    Historians of art like to believe that they can solve the riddles of interpretation posed by masterpieces of old painting. Firm in the conviction that a great painting is endowed by its creator with a unique, unambiguous message, we struggle to recover that meaning through the use of textual and visual evidence. And, up to a point, the historical m

  • Desnuda-vestido, vestida-desnudo: Les amoureuses (Elena & Rrrose), con Duchamp al fondo

    • RamĂ­rez, Juan Antonio    04/01/03

    Marcel Duchamp está frente al tablero de ajedrez, muy concentrado en una partida contra (o con) una joven completamente desvestida, sentada en el lado opuesto. La escena captada en esta fotografía se desarrolla en una sala del Pasadena Art Museum (California) el 18 octubre de 1963, con ocasión de la primera exposición retrospectiva que se le de
