Marcel Duchamp mis à nuA propos du processus créatif

Marc Décimo - Marcel Duchamp mis à nu
Marcel Duchamp is “laid bare” by Marc Décimo who talks about the creative process in his most recent book on the father of conceptual art. Anyone who comes across a readymade by Duchamp is surprised. “But why?” is the question most often asked. The readymade undoubtedly provided the greatest challenge to the classic notion of beauty ; it also marks a turning point in consideration of defined limits of painting and sculpture.
Linguist, semiotician and art historian, Marc Décimo is Professor of Contemporary Art History in Paris-X Nanterre and Regent of the College of 'Pataphysics (Chair of Literary, Ethnographical and Architectural Amoriography). He is the editor of Lydie Fischer Sarazin-Levassor's memories with Marcel Duchamp, and of Brisset's complete works. He published around twenty books on fous littéraires and historical avant-gardes, including an essay on Brisset (Jean-Pierre Brisset - Prince des Penseurs), and numerous books on Duchamp: Duchamp mis à nu (“Duchamp laid bare”), Duchamp facile (“Duchamp made easy”)...
