Formalism Aesthetic ‘effect’ Achievement of expression Marcel Duchamp, Bottle Rack, 1914 -Attempt at radical rejection…but nonetheless it establishes the discourse of the avant-garde -Critique of: conventional skills of representation artistic authority -Targets categories of ‘significant form,’ ‘individual expression,’ ‘aesthetic response’ What does Bottle Rack tell us about art? -There is no essence of art that distinguishes art object from any other object
