Podcast 49: Marcel Duchamp—The Large Glass


Carefully and obsessively fabricated by Marcel Duchamp, The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even a.k.a, The Large Glass was a summation of decades of re-thinking the definition of “art” and the role of the “artist.” Still an underground artist, Duchamp declared himself finished with art when the Large Glass was broken and carefully repaired. Discussing the role of male sexuality in this “scene” of sexual frustration, this podcast recounts the making and the meaning of this seminal work.
