Description

„Too much importance is attached to the silence of Marcel Duchamp.“ When Joseph Beuys expressed this in 1964, he could not have guessed that thirty years later the literature on Duchamp would reach such a scale that it is impossible even for specialists to gain an overview let alone to understand it. Nevertheless, many blind spots are remaining: Take for instance “the in some details unclear attempt by R. Mutt to smuggle a pissoir into an exhibition that did not have a jury and where he himself was part of the committee.” In his detailed research the author deals with this “case Mutt” dismissing some speculations and correcting many errors and untruths.
