Synopsis: Much has been written about Duchamp from the point of view of gender studies which focus on sex and gender roles. This book examines Duchamp’s work from the metaphysical level of Androgyny, which has nothing to do with sexuality except in a symbolic manner.Duchamp understood Androgyny as a psychological state, and as a traditional ideal of spiritual traditions around the world. It is the first book-length study of Androgyny in the work of any major artist.
10 x 7 inches. 88 pages. 23,000 words. 36 plates.
Slipcase. Smythe sewn, green cloth cover, gold foil stamped face & spine.
From the Publisher: The first book-length study of this aspect of Duchamp’s work by a noted scholar who, as a young curator at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, talked about Androgyny with Duchamp (when they were not playing chess). Androgyny, once a quite esoteric subject, has now been designated a "megatrend" in contemporary society. The text explores the psychological and historical aspects of the concept of true male/female balance as a metaphysical ideal, then traces the many ways Duchamp visualized the concept during every decade of his career. This elegantly designed book, boxed in hand-cut green cloth, is a limited edition object, presented as a signed and numbered edition of 1,000 copies with a "readymade" of L.H.O.O.Q. on the cover.
