"I love Calvin Tomkins' Duchamp: The Afternoon Interviews. I've already gotten to use two quotes from the book. 'A mule's kick of debonair style' and 'badass 'tude.'"

Marcel Duchamp: The Afternoon Interviews

Published by Badlands Unlimited
By Calvin Tomkins.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Marcel Duchamp: The Afternoon Interviews</I>.In 1964, Calvin Tomkins spent a number of afternoons interviewing Marcel Duchamp in his apartment on West 10th Street in New York. Casual yet insightful, Duchamp reveals himself as a man and an artist whose playful principles toward living freed him to make art that was as unpredictable, complex, and surprising as life itself. Those interviews have never been edited and made public, until now. The Afternoon Interviews, which includes an introductory interview with Tomkins reflecting on Duchamp as an artist, guide and friend, reintroduces the reader to key ideas of his artistic world and renews Duchamp as a vital model for a new generation of artists.
Calvin Tomkins was born in 1925 in Orange, New Jersey. He joined the New Yorker as a staff writer in 1960. His many profiles include John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham, Leo Castelli, Damien Hirst, Richard Serra, Bruce Nauman, Cindy Sherman and Jasper Johns. Tomkins is the author of 12 books, including The Bride and the Bachelors (1965), Living Well Is the Best Revenge (1971), Lives of the Artists (2008) and Duchamp: A Biography (1996).

Lost Treasure: Calvin Tomkins' Afternoon Interviews with Marcel Duchamp

Lost Treasure: Calvin Tomkins' Afternoon Interviews with Marcel DuchampIn 1964, Calvin Tomkins interviewed Marcel Duchamp in the artist's apartment over a series of relaxed afternoons. The transcripts were never edited or published—until now, in a new collection from Paul Chan's Badlands Unlimited. The book is a delight to read, full of playful ideas and unguarded responses. For example, when asked about the importance of art dealers, Duchamp replied, "Very good and very bad at the same time. They have launched so many young people. They are the lice on the back of the artist. The collectors are also parasites. The artist is the beautiful flower on which all these parasites go around. I like them very much because they are very nice people, but that has nothing to do with their essential quality, which is to be a parasite on the artist."
