Kant After Duchamp


Marcel Duchamp, Thierry de Duve

Kant After Duchamp


"Kant After Duchamp brings together eight essays around a central thesis with many implications for the history of avant-gardes. Marcel Duchamp, Thierry de Duve observes, made the logic of modernist art practice the subject matter of his work, a shift in aesthetic judgement that replaced the classical "this is beautiful" with 'this is art.' De Duve employs this shift (replacing the word 'beauty' by the word 'art') in a rereading of Kant's 'Critique of Judgement' that reveals the hidden links between the radical experiments of Duchamp and the Dadaists and mainstream pictorial modernism." --publisher's statement.
