“The two crackings are symmetrically disposed – there is almost an intention there. An extra, curious intention that I am not responsible for – a readymade intention, in other words, that I respect and love.” —Marcel Duchamp

Happy Birthday to Marcel Duchamp, born on July 28, 1887 (d. October 2, 1968).

Speaking of his 1915-1923 masterwork, The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass) at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is the starting point for this interview with Marcel Duchamp from 1956. Recorded by NBC with James Johnson Sweeney, then Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, this video comes to us courtesy of Manufacturing Intellect.
