“we can say that the ordinary object that escapes conscious notice, although we use it every day, captures our attention in the context of the museum and acquires new meaning” (Groys,1994,82)
Writing my dissertation and I come across this quote. I am not sure why but it hit my head over and over again. I should ask the question would my art be considered art without Marcel Duchamp and his Ready-made? I’m not sure if it would exist. So to the man who took a urinal and made it art, Thank you.
