• Duchamp and Dreier

    • Angeline, John    05/01/00

    Dear Tout-Fait, Congratulations on an exciting and generally brilliant issue! As a co-editor of an online arts journal (PART, http://web.gsuc.cuny.edu/dsc/part.html) I am impressed with what you have done. One quibble — the Anastasi article about the Large Glass, while intriguing, unfortunately falls into the same wrongheaded cliches ab

    William Anastasi responds: I was pleased to learn that Katherine Dreier has been the subject of a doctoral dissertation. If there is evidence showing that the Tomkins and Marquis accounts of her relationship with Duchamp are off base, adjustments would be welcome. Dr. Angeline states that "correspondence between Dreier and Duchamp does reveal that

    Hello Tout-Fait, What a find! I'm an "anartist" and post-grad art history and theory student at the University of Essex in the UK (Dawn Ades and Margaret Iversen are my tutors). This first issue was tremendous. More please! Apropos of Rhonda and Stephen's article on the "Standard Stoppages," I'm probably not the only Duchampian to notice, also,

  • Duchamp and Repetition

    • Zaunschirm, Thomas    05/01/00

    Dear Rhonda, Who said, he hated repetition? Exactly — that was the crucial point in staring at Marcel Duchamp's work for almost one century. The solution does not lie in an agreement of the scholars, but in the deconstruction of this vain palace of interpretations. You are doing the main job. Just looking at the phenomena and describing the co

  • What Makes the Bicycle Wheel a Readymade?

    • 05/01/00

    Dear Tout-Fait, This question is in my mind and it drives me crazy... Is the Bicycle Wheel a readymade?
