LOOKING THROUGH DUCHAMP’S DOOR
ART AND PERSPECTIVE IN THE WORK OF DUCHAMP. SUGIMOTO.JEFF WALL
Materia: Ensayo de arte contemporáneo
The door that Marcel Duchamp installed in Philadelphia is a metaphor for a brilliant strategy that redirects the worn-out view of perspective back to one’s self. Hiroshi Sugimoto and Jeff Wall, two protagonists of photography in contemporary art, both looked through this door as they became artists and have both referenced Duchamp time and again.
