BeschreibungMarcel Duchamp's gift to artists was similar to the Marquis de Sade's gift to sadistsrelief from moral restraints, accountability, guilt, and shame. Wayne Andersen will convince you that Duchamp was not the great artist that so many in the academic and museum world believe him to be. Rather, he was a great con artist who spread his charm and wit over the New York art scene. He was clever in his evasive insecurity and so exaggerated that his silly witticisms are still published today as serious. Duchamp was like an alien element that fragmented modern art with the impact of a meteor. The birth of postmodernism (some people say) spelled the end of modernism, the end of historical progress, just as that meteors impact meant the end of evolution. Is any of this true?
PortraitWayne Andersen is professor of history, theory, and criticism of art at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He has published twelve books on contemporary art and has a PhD from Columbia University. He is a popular lecturer and prolific writer.
