The Duchamp scholars represented here are among the leading European and American critics of their generation. Their 11 essays offer lively nd diverse perspectives on the artist, focusing on the major issues surrounding his contribution: the philosophical implications of Duchamp's skepticism, eroticism, and paradoxical acceptance of contradiction; the events leading to the creation of the infamous Fountain; a rigorous reading of the Large Glass by Jean Suquet that appears here in English for the first time, as does André Gervais's exhilarating voyage through Duchamp's puns, aphorisms,and word plays; a reinterpretation of Duchamp's late works as ready mades; the influence of scientific models on his art, and of the gender-based teaching of drawing in the Third Republic on his - or Rrose Sélavy's - peculiar use of mechanical drawing.

Thierry de Duve is Director of Studies, Association de préfiguration de l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris.

Thierry de Duve is Director of Studies, Association de préfiguration de l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris.

Review:



"[A] beautifully designed book ... Duchamp emerges here as gendered, textual, carnal, and visual.... The discussion fostered by the Nova Scotia colloquium not only points to the future of Duchamp studies but suggests some significant directions for the new art history."
- Mason Klein, Artforum
