Cully
The Association Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp (KMD) was founded in 2009 in the aim of organizing a symposium and an international event devoted to Marcel Duchamp and the Forestay Waterfall. The KMD was also built for this occasion, and a book edition was initiated in collaboration with the Verlag für moderne Kunst in Nuremberg (since 2015 in Vienna).
The KMD is a homage to Marcel Duchamp's Box in a Valise. It is situated on the shore of lake Geneva, not far from the Forestay Waterfall, which the artist photographed in 1946 as the starting point of his last masterpiece Étant donnés: 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gaz d'éclairage. 
The KMD is the world's “smallest” museum and shows “great” exhibitions of internationally renowned and emerging artists. KMD edition publishes hard-cover books (art theory, monographs, artists’ books, and exhibition catalogues) not only in its meanwhile famous miniature format but also in standard, larger formats.
Tthe KMD is an artistic project by Caroline Bachmann and Stefan Banz.
