What Makes a Work of Art?
- What should an artwork provide to both the maker and the viewer?
- Who is it for?
- Where does one encounter art?
- What is the role of the artist?
Some very fine quotes by Marcel Duchamp:
“Art is not about itself but the attention we bring to it.”
“Do unto others as they wish, but with imagination.”
“Art is either plagiarism or revolution.
“I have forced myself to contradict myself in order to avoid conforming to my own taste.”
“I don't believe in art. I believe in artists.”
“I force myself to contradict myself in order to avoid conforming to my own taste.”
