"Like the influential artists of centuries past—Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Turner, Goya, Cézanne—Duchamp will take his place in art history according to the unfathomable tastes of future generations. But, despite the avalanche of scholarly dissections of Duchamp's oeuvre, precious little illuminates why he chose to perpetrate his various projects, and how brilliantly he rode the media merry-go-round of the twentieth century. The why is a matter of history intersecting with family, place and personality. The how is a saga teased out of archives, interviews and printed material. But the key to the Duchampian riddle remains the singular individual who tiptoed lightly through an altogether too serious world by never taking anything or anyone seriously, especially himself."
Alice Goldfarb Marquis, excerpted from her biography, Marcel Duchamp: The Bachelor Stripped Bare, MFA Publications.

"One of the most influential artists of the twentieth century," according his New York Times obituary, Marcel Duchamp was a key member of both the Dada and Surrealist avant garde art movements. Deliberately enigmatic and unpredictable, he was the grandson of the French painter and engraver Emile Nicolle, and brother of the artists Jacques Villon, Raymond Duchamp-Villon and Suzanne Duchamp-Crotti. He was equally known for his provocative "Readymade" objects, his influence on such important figures as Peggy Guggenheim and Louise and Walter Conrad Arensberg and his late preoccupation with the strategy game of chess. Without Marcel Duchamp, contemporary art would not be as we know it today.

Duchamp’s “Bottle Rack” (1914) was his first true readymade--an artwork made without “artistic handiwork.” Taking a fresh look at this work, art historian Lars Blunck shows how Duchamp, using irony and wordplay, turned against the “retinal” paradigm of his time.

Text by Stefan Banz.

Made by Duchamp in 1914, "Pharmacie" is a cheap reproduction of a winter landscape with two drops of color and the artist’s signature added to it. With this work, Duchamp created his first "rectified readymade." Here, Stefan Banz investigates the meaning of the term "rectified readymade" and discusses the philosophical dimensions of this cryptic piece.

Marcel Duchamp at the Age of 85Marcel Duchamp at the Age of 85

An Icon of Conceptual Photography

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Herbert Molderings, Friedrich Kiesler. Photographs by Percy Rainford.

In 1945, Marcel Duchamp published a photographic self-portrait in the American magazine View which depicted him--according to the caption--“at the age of 85.” In reality he was, at the time, only 58 years old. In other words, the camera was being used as a “time machine,” but not, as customary, to capture a present moment, but rather to look into the future. Until now, the circumstances surrounding this early instance of the “staged photograph” were unknown. This book includes a recently discovered script by Friedrich Kiesler, published here for the first time, in which Kiesler describes in full detail how he assisted his friend Duchamp in styling himself as a senile artist–philosopher for the lens of New York photographer Percy Rainford. The well-known Duchamp expert Herbert Molderings interprets Duchamp’s self-portrait as an innovative, conceptual use of photography.

Marcel Duchamp: The Afternoon InterviewsMarcel Duchamp: The Afternoon Interviews

Published by Badlands Unlimited.
By Calvin Tomkins.

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).

In 1932, Marcel Duchamp published Opposition and Sister Squares Are Reconciled, a collaboration with chess champion Vitaly Halberstadt on endgames in chess. Ernst Strouhal’s illustrated study approaches this volume as an “almost utopian treatise on chess endgames” and as a trilingual artist’s book. (French/German/English).

Edited by Stefan Banz. Text by Paul B. Franklin, Dalia Judovitz, Michael Lüthy, Bernard Marcadé, Herbert Molderings, Francis M. Naumann, Mark Nelson, Molly Nesbit, Dominique Radrizzani, Michael R. Taylor, Philip Ursprung.

In August 1946, Marcel Duchamp spent five weeks in Switzerland, and stayed at the Hotel Bellevue (today, Le Baron Tavernier) near Chexbres, on Lake Geneva. It was here that he discovered the Forestay waterfall, which was to become the starting point for (and ultimately the landscape of) his enigmatic and final masterpiece, "Étant donnés: 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gaz d'éclairage" ("Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating Gas"). Now, for the first time, the full significance of the choice of this waterfall is explored. Among the contributors to this volume are Caroline Bachmann, Stefan Banz, Etienne Barilier, Lars Blunck, Ecke Bonk, Paul B. Franklin, Antje von Graevenitz, Dalia Judovitz, Michael Lüthy, Bernard Marcadé, Herbert Molderings, Adeena Mey, Stanislaus von Moos, Francis M.

Looking through Duchamp’s DoorLooking through Duchamp’s Door

Art and Perspective in the Work of Duchamp, Sugimoto and Jeff Wall

Published by Walther König, Köln.
By Hans Belting.

In this new book by Hans Belting, three essays are united by one theme—the persistence of perspective after its supposed demise in the hands of modernism. Belting addresses perspective in the works of Marcel Duchamp, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Jeff Wall, in the process opening up new approaches to their work. According to Belting, the door that Marcel Duchamp installed for his final masterpiece, “Etant Donnés” (which Belting tells us was inspired by a bout of seasickness on a trip to Buenos Aires) was a decisive touchstone for both Sugimoto and Wall in their formative years, and he demonstrates how they have referenced its maker many times since. Belting's argument, embellished with many illustrations, makes for a thorough reassessment of perspective.

Marcel Duchamp: Works, Writings, InterviewsMarcel Duchamp: Works, Writings, Interviews

Published by Poligrafa.
Text by Gloria Moure.

By his own testimony, Marcel Duchamp considered painting a "means of expression, not an end in itself. One means of expression among others, and not a complete end for life at all." His legendary "Large Glass," for example, can be seen as simply the culmination or sum of numerous experiments conducted over an eight-year period. For this reason, every aspect of his oeuvre--painting, installation, writing, interviews--is of potentially equivalent interest, and any Duchamp primer needs to present his more ephemeral contributions, in aphorisms, diagrams and conversation, alongside his visual experiments. Works, Writings, Interviews does this job splendidly, exploring the artist's many-faceted activities, analyzing his work as an entirety and gathering his key interviews and writings.

Marcel Duchamp: Tu M'Marcel Duchamp: Tu M'

Puzzle Upon Puzzle

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essay by Karl Gerstner.

The oeuvre Duchamp left us is small and repeatedly subject to multiple interpretations of the art historical, psychological, socio-critical and alchemical persuasion. And yet, how odd: Duchamp's last painting, Tu m' from 1918, has never drawn extensive attention among his exegetes. The title itself poses a riddle: Does it mean "tu m'aimes" (you love me), "tu m'emb'tes" (you bore me) or "tu m'emmerdes" (you can kiss my ass)? Karl Gerstner, a prominent Swiss graphic designer who knew Duchamp personally, was taken aback the first time he saw Tu m', but also intrigued. Having acquired a reproduction of the picture, Gerstner proceeded to penetrate its meanings and surfaces more and more deeply; as his surprise faded, his fascination grew. Enter this book, encouraged by artist Richard Hamilton (perhaps the most intimate of Duchamp connoisseurs), and its 20 analytical essays of riddle-solving.

Marcel DuchampMarcel Duchamp

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Essays by Harald Szeeman, Dieter Daniels, Herbert Molderings and Jacques Caumont.

A one-time Fauvist, Cubist, Dadaist, and Surrealist, but an eternal chess player, Marcel Duchamp remains the avant-garde figure beyond all avant-garde figures of the past century. Provocative and brilliant, he radically challenged and changed accepted notions of art and its manufacture, and of the relationship between art and life. Marcel Duchamp, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Jean Tinguely Museum in Basel under the curatorship of Harald Szeeman, endeavors to trace the different periods of Duchamp's oeuvre by means of a selection of his work focused mainly on those aspects that influenced Tinguely's own oeuvre. Additionally, the publication contains statements by Duchamp and essays by renowned Duchamp scholars on such topics as the emergence and development of the ready-made concept and its impact on the art of the 1960s.
