Famous quotes containing the word duchamp:

    The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem.... I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists.
    —Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968)

    The individual, man as a man, man as a brain, if you like, interests me more than what he makes, because I’ve noticed that most artists only repeat themselves.
    —Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968)

    Living is more a question of what one spends than what one makes.
    —Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968)
