back to the basics


“Let’s say you have a tube of paint; you didn’t make it. You bought it and used it as a ready-made…Man can never expect to start from scratch; he must start from ready-made things like even his mother and father.”

Marcel Duchamp, quoted in David Joselit, “Molds and Swarms”, in Molesworth, Part Object Part Sculpture, 158.
