Looking through Duchamp’s Door

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

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.

FROM THE BOOK
"Perspective once represented a visual habit of Western culture. As an idea, it was tied to the Western gaze, which made the world into its own image. But it was abandoned in modern art or allowed to become merely a kind of game, in order to transfer the notion of art from the work to an idea. Art now entered the mirror of the gaze. Thus Duchamp, in his own ways, prepared the ground for the era after modernism, when the West's universal concept of art began to dissolve. The so-called conceptual artists of the 1960s claimed Duchamp's legacy, but they reduced him to an aid for taking apart exhibition art and its concentration on the artwork."
Hans Belting
