duchamp, performance art and the bbc. -by maria t.

continuing from morfeas…

“A 77-year-old Frenchman has spent a night

in custody in Paris after attacking a plain porcelain

urinal considered to be a major artwork.

Police said the man had urinated on the same

piece at an exhibition in Nimes, southern France, in 1993.

Police said the man claimed the hammer attack was

a work of performance art that Marcel Duchamp himself

would have appreciated.

from bbc front page, 6th of January 2006. title of article: man held for hitting urinal work.
