BONK, Ecke. Marcel Duchamp: Die Grosse Schachtel de our par Marchel Duchamp ou Rrose Selavy.
(Munich): Schirmer / Mosel, 1989. First edition. Quarto. 323 pages. Fantastic and detailed account of the making ‘La-boîte-en-valise’ (Box in a Valise) is a small leather carrying case which opens up into a small exhibition of Marcel Duchamp’s work, complete with folding frames, consisting of 69 miniature replicas and reproductions of his work, including a mini urinal and depictions of famous works such as ‘The Large Glass’ and ‘Nude Descending a Staircase’. The case fits very well within Duchamp’s oeuvre, as he decided at the beginning of the twentieth century to stop making art in the traditional manner. Illustrated throughout. A very good copy in dust jacket.
