Because Marcel Duchamp is the freest man of the 20st century.
Because he made this fundamental liberty flourish, he would feed it, all the time, with every breath, every gesture.
Because this liberty is his artwork.
Because it is elegant.
Because it is radical.
Because this liberty is so relentless became natural, necessary, vital.
Because Marcel Duchamp is the nuclear force of Art: manifesting small frictions that create devastating explosions of meaning and emotion.
Because Marcel Duchamp is the one who invents a new politics of seeing.
Because Marcel Duchamp is a stowaway of the Arts who will in spite of himself end up at the bow of the ship.
