The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Green Box)

This object contains selected notes and details that highlight the thought processes behind Duchamp's work “The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even”. Duchamp uses ninety-three notes that are originally written, on stray scraps of paper. By publishing a part of his notes to the viewer he allows him to become an active participant in the notes’ arrangement, as they are not fixed together in one sequence, allowing open interpretation and interaction.
