A video about Duchamp


Only the individual matters to me. The artist in particular matters as an individual not as a group.

I'm not a fan of Marcel Duchamp. His work is boring, as are many of his ideas. However, I do like his attitude. This and those of his ideas that aren't boring are derived from Max Stirner and Nietzsche, both of whom Picabia put him on to.

Come to think of it, I suspect I'd think better of him if everybody else didn't think so much of him.

Getting in touch with your inherent contrariness, much? ;)
