During the last 15 years a lot of works by Bulgarian art¬ists were dedicated to Marcel Duchamp. The idea for this exhibition was indeed born because of their persistent need to engage with this artist and to search for answers to questions posed by his art. The exhibition is showing already existing works as well as new ones that are made especially for this project. We are using the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Duchamp’s birth in order to once again talk about him and with him.
