A Revealing Statement by Marcel Duchamp

"I believe that art is the only form of activity in which man shows himself to be a true individual...Only in art is he capable of going beyond the animal state, because art is an outlet toward regions which are not ruled by space and time."

--Marcel Duchamp, in James Johnson Sweeney,
"Eleven Europeans in America," Museum of Modern Art Bulletin, pp. 19-21
