Marcel Duchamp — Etant Donnes

700,00 kr.

“Published to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the original installation of Étant donnés and to accompany the first major exhibition on the work and its studies, this richly illustrated book presents a wealth of new research and documents that draw upon previously unpublished works of art, photographs, and other materials. Examines the critical and artistic reception of Étant donnés, as evidenced by the subsequent work of Les Levine, Hannah Wilke, Robert Gober, Marcel Dzama, Ray Johnson, and other artists who have engaged with Duchamp’s provocative and challenging tableau-construction.” Étant donnés was Marcel Duchamp’s final work and, per his instructions, installed after his death. The piece was a surprise to the public because it was assumed Duchamp had retired completely from art making after 25 years spent playing competitive chess. A gorgeously produced catalog benefiting from the filter of time through which the meaning, context, and influence of this challenging work of art can be better understood”
