Believing that copies and originals offer comparable forms of aesthetic pleasure, Marcel Duchamp repeatedly replicated some of his works using different techniques, differentiating them through what he defined as “infra-thin variations on the theme.”
The workshop, designed and led by Claudia Corrent, sees each participant reproducing a single subject, obsessively over and over again, experimenting with different printing and impression techniques, developing images in a darkroom and manipulating them.
- The workshop takes place at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection over two days for maximum of 12 participants.
- Participation is free. Registration required by December 11, 2023.
- Participants must guarantee their attendance for the two days the workshop takes place (December 14–15, from 10 am–5:30 pm).
