Thetitle of the exhibition refers to a ready-made, realized by Marcel Duchamp in1919 by sending instructions from Buenos Aires to her sister Suzanne Duchampand her husband Jean Crotti.
Today we continue to ask whether the artwork with its high value in the global market can be liberated of itsidentity as consumption good? What is the future of art work which 100 years ago has been designated as an element of capitalist system? Yes, we can say that many art Works are ready-mades; but at the same time many art Works are bein gproduced in despite of ready-mades. Ready madeis an inevitable representation; other kinds of art Works are being produced in consciousness of this representation and against this fact. The exhibition intends to display the retrospective and current works of the artists who have utilized and interpreted ready-made in different contextsant aesthetics.
