Looking Back

The fact that in 1969 Duchamp's writings existed only in French and that his works were very much tied to Paris drew me inevitably to the city, which is a treasury of unrivaled historical richness. Exploring the new artistic and intellectual spaces created by Duchamp was right from the beginning intimately related to the unending pleasure of strolling through the quartiers of Paris Streets, squares, and façades.
