Miguel dos Santos, University College London: "Duchamp's Box Problem"
Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain is known to raise, and play a central role in, many problems, some of which have occupied philosophers while others have occupied art historians. In this talk, I’ll uncover a problem raised by Fountain that connects those problems but which has gone unnoticed in the philosophical and art historical literatures—Duchamp’s paradox. My aim will be twofold: to propose a solution to Duchamp’s paradox, and (if time allows) to show that this solution yields a common solution to the other, well-established problems.
