Description

In this captivating collection of essays on Marcel Duchamp and his legacy, the renowned Swiss Duchamp expert Stefan Banz (born 1961) explains, among other things, why it was not Walter Hopps who mounted Duchamp's first solo exhibition in a public institution but Max Bill; what exactly Joseph Beuys had misunderstood about Duchamp when he performed The Silence of Marcel Duchamp is Overrated; how Fischli/Weiss appropriated Duchamp's unrealized idea for quilibre; the numerous ways in which Ai Weiwei cites Duchamp in almost all of his major works; and the tremendous influence that novelist Jules Verne had on the artistic approach of this great avant-gardist.
