Le Duchamp facile

Marc Décimo - Le Duchamp facile
Following La bibliothèque de Marcel Duchamp, a list of the contents of Duchamp's library, and simultaneously with the essay Duchamp mis à nu, Marc Décimo once again ponders the life and art of Marcel Duchamp (Duchamp Made Easy) with a new approach. Can his work be reduced to a few keywords : revelation, dissociation, association, readymade, family, intellectual experiments? And what sort of aesthetics is seeded by this master-maverick at the beginning of the 20th century?
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”)...
