Le compte-rendu de l'événement multidisciplinaire autour de la cascade du Forestay à Bellevue, le point de départ de l'œuvre de Duchamp Etant donnés : 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gaz d'éclairage, l'une des plus célèbres et mystérieuses de l'histoire de l'art du XXe siècle : une vingtaine de conférences (sur la cascade, sur Etant donnés, sur son contexte, sa réception et sa postérité) et plus de 300 illustrations (les images des concerts, des installations et des expositions et les très abondantes sources iconographiques qui jettent une lumière nouvelle sur l'œuvre de Duchamp). En 1946, Marcel Duchamp a séjourné cinq semaines en Suisse en compagnie d'une de ses amies, Mary Reynolds. Il a notamment passé cinq jours - du 5 au 9 août - sur les bords du Léman. Il logeait à l'Hôtel Bellevue (aujourd'hui l'Hôtel Le Baron Tavernier), près de Chexbres, en plein cœur du Lavaux, non loin de la première chute du Forestay. Cette cascade inflige une coupe au paysage des vignobles, creuse un sillon semblable à une vulve, mais elle est en même temps dissimulée par les sapins et d'autres arbres. Duchamp a photographié cette situation et il a intégré cette image dans son ultime grand chef-d'œuvre, l'installation Étant donnés : 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gaz d'éclairage (1946-1966). Cette œuvre représente le 1°, la chute d'eau, comme le vagin de la nature, d'où jaillit un flux, entre deux pans de montagne écartés (formant un angle ouvert). Un événement pluridisciplinaire (colloque, concert, expositions et interventions) a été organisé en 2010 sur les rives du Léman autour de cette œuvre complexe, avec la volonté de tenir compte de faits et de sources iconographiques récemment réapparus et de permettre ainsi de réévaluer sa portée artistique et notamment sa réception chez les artistes contemporains. Cet ouvrage recueille les actes du colloque ainsi que les sources iconographiques et les œuvres exposées. Publié suite à l'événement éponyme organisé en mai 2010 à Cully par l'association Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp.--[Pro.rue-des livres.com].

A groundbreaking reading of Duchamp's work as informed by Asian “esoterism, ” energetic spiritual practices identifying creative energy with the erotic impulse. Considered by many to be the most important artist of the twentieth century, the object of intensive critical scrutiny and extensive theorizing, Marcel Duchamp remains an enigma. He may be the most intellectual artist of all time; and yet, toward the end of his life, he said, “If you wish, my art would be that of living: each second, each breath is a work which is inscribed nowhere, which is neither visual or cerebral.” In Marcel Duchamp and the Art of Life, Jacquelynn Baas offers a groundbreaking new reading of Duchamp, arguing in particular that his work may have been informed by Asian “esoterism, ” energetic spiritual practices that identify creative energy with the erotic impulse. Duchamp drew on a wide range of sources for his art, from science and mathematics to alchemy. Largely overlooked, until now, have been Asian spiritual practices, including Indo-Tibetan tantra. Baas presents evidence that Duchamp's version of artistic realization was grounded in a western interpretation of Asian mind training and body energetics designed to transform erotic energy into mental and spiritual liberation. She offers close readings of many Duchamp works, beginning and ending with his final work, the mysterious, shockingly explicit Étant donnés: 1° la chute d'eau 2° le gaz d'éclairage, (Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating Gas). Generously illustrated, with many images in color, Marcel Duchamp and the Art of Life speculates that Duchamp viewed art making as part of an esoteric continuum grounded in Eros. It asks us to unlearn what we think we know, about both art and life, in order to be open to experience.

In Summer 1946, Marcel Duchamp spent five weeks in Switzerland, including five days at the Hotel Bellevue (today, Le Baron Tavernier) near Chexbres, on Lake Geneva. There he discovered the Forestay waterfall. No research was ever done as to why the artist chose this waterfall and not another to become the starting point for and ultimately the landscape of his famous final masterpiece, Étantdonnés: 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gazd'éclairage (Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating Gas) until Stefan Banz started a extensive research about this topic in 2007. This article brings light onto one of the most illuminated footnotes in Duchamp research and in the art of the twentieth Century.

This book advances an enactivist theory of aesthetics through the study of inscrutable artworks that challenge us to think because we do not know what to think about them. John M. Carvalho presents detailed analyses a four artworks that share this unique characteristic: Francis Bacon’s Study After Velázquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953), the photographs of Duane Michals, based on a retrospective of his work, Storyteller, at the Carnegie Museum of Art (2014), Étant donnés (1968) by Marcel Duchamp, and Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film Le Mépris (released in the United States as Contempt). Carvalho argues against the application of theory to derive appreciation or meaning from these artistic works. Rather, each study enacts an embodied cognitive engagement with the specific artworks intended to demonstrate the value of thinking about artworks that might be extended to our engagement with the world in general. This thinking happens, as these studies show, when we trust our embodied skills and their guide to what artworks and the world around us afford for the activation and refinement of those skills. Thinking with Images will be of interest to scholars working in the philosophy of art and philosophical aesthetics, as well as art historians concerned with the meaning and value of contemporary art.

aka Marcel Duchamp is an anthology of recent essays by leading scholars on Marcel Duchamp, arguably the most influential artist of the twentieth century. With scholarship addressing the full range of Duchamp's career, these papers examine how Duchamp's influence grew and impressed itself upon his contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists. Duchamp provides an illuminating model of the dynamics of play in construction of artistic identity and legacy, which includes both personal volition and contributions made by fellow artists, critics, and historians. This volume is not only important for its contributions to Duchamp studies and the light it sheds on the larger impact of Duchamp's art and career on modern and contemporary art, but also for what it reveals about how the history of art itself is shaped over time by shifting agendas, evolving methodologies, and new discoveries.

While much has been written on Marcel Duchamp - one of the twentieth century's most beguiling artists - the subject of his flirtation with architecture seems to have been largely overlooked. Yet, in the carefully arranged plans and sections organising the blueprint of desire in the Large Glass, his numerous pieces replicating architectural fragments, and his involvement in designing exhibitions, Duchamp's fascination with architectural design is clearly evident. As his unconventional architectural influences - Niceron, Lequeu and Kiesler - and diverse legacy - Tschumi, OMA, Webb, Diller + Scofidio and Nicholson - indicate, Duchamp was not as much interested in 'built' architecture as he was in the architecture of desire, re-constructing the imagination through drawing and testing the boundaries between reality and its aesthetic and philosophical possibilities. Marcel Duchamp and the Architecture of Desire examines the link between architectural thinking and Duchamp's work. By employing design, drawing and making - the tools of the architect - Haralambidou performs an architectural analysis of Duchamp’s final enigmatic work Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating Gas... demonstrating an innovative research methodology able to grasp meaning beyond textual analysis. This novel reading of his ideas and methods adds to, but also challenges, other art-historical interpretations. Through three main themes - allegory, visuality and desire - the book defines and theorises an alternative drawing practice positioned between art and architecture that predates and includes Duchamp.

Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) hat mit seinem bilderstürmerischen Werk die Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts und unsere Vorstellung von ihr radikal verändert. München spielte dabei eine nicht ganz unwichtige Rolle. Verärgert über die Ablehnung seines Gemäldes Akt, eine Treppe herabsteigend Nr. 2 im Salon des Indépendants verlässt Duchamp Paris und fährt Ende Juni 1912 nach München. Er will einen guten Freund besuchen, den Maler Max Bergmann, den er in Paris kennengelernt hatte. Bald beschliesst er, länger zu bleiben, und mietet sich in einem Zimmer in der Barerstrasse ein. Am Ende bleibt er drei Monate und entwickelt mehrere bedeutende Arbeiten, die heute u.a. im Museum of Modern Art in New York zu sehen sind, wie etwa das Gemälde Von der Jungfrau zur Braut. Exhibition: Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich, Germany (31.3.-15.7.2012).
