Dialogues with Marcel Duchamp by Pierre Cabanne

The ground-breaking importance of Duchamp’s oeuvre, which challenges the development of artistic representation, only began to be grasped in its wider context thanks to practitioners and theoreticians of conceptual art, minimalist art and pop art at the start of the sixties. This book make a significant contribution to the shift in the centre of gravity from retinal to cerebral, a shift that typified the latter half of the twentieth century.

Duchamp offers a completely new perspective on the history of representation and the function of art, and is essential reading for those wishing to have an informed opinion regarding the tempestuous development of art in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
