Marcel Duchamp, Studio, 67th Street in New York: "Für mich ist die Malerei veraltet. Sie ist Energieverschwendung, keine gute Masche, nicht praktisch. Wir haben jetzt die Photographie, das Kino – soviel andere Wege um das Leben auszudrücken."

Marcel Duchamp interviewed in '66. Talks about unnecessary adoration of art. The idea behind the 'Fountain' was to chose and object that would not attract him either by its beauty or by it ugliness - to find a point of indifference in looking at it.
