This beautifully designed book focuses on the structural basis of Marcel Duchamp´s oeuvre, the intellectual attitude and the methods he developed to interrupt the utilitarian flow of objects.
"Marcel Duchamp has influenced the art of the 20th century more than anyone else except Pablo Picasso. One can reasonably claim that without his work, art history would have taken a different course," writes Herbert Molderings in his text on Marcel Duchamp as a sculptor. With his ready-mades, the Roue de bicyclette [Bicycle Wheel] from 1913 or the Porte bouteille [Bottle Dryer] from 1914, he significantly expanded the idea of a work of art - an expansion of borders that was to have major consequences for the development of art in the 20th century. The first edition of Marcel Duchamp - Respirateur in 1995 was sold out shortly after publication. Now this beautifully designed book, a bibliophile treasure, is available again. It focuses on the structural basis of Duchamp's oeuvre, the intellectual attitude and the methods he developed to interrupt the utilitarian flow of objects. A selection of statements by Duchamp, printed on parchment paper, give an insight into his aesthetic concept, and not least into the French artist's enigmatic wit and irony. The artist: Marcel Duchamp (Blainville near Rouen 1887-1968 Neuilly-sur- Seine). 1904 studied at the Académie Julian in Paris. In 1913 his work Nude Descending a Staircase was displayed in the Armory Show in New York. In 1914 he created his first ready-made. From 1915 he lived alternately in Paris and New York. From 1923, Duchamp no longer worked as an artist, but collaborated on some experimental films.
