Summary
This volume explores the notion of tactility in the Dada and Surrealism movements, presenting an argument that highlights the role of a physical, intellectual, emotional, and intimate form of knowing. The author offers a presentation of Marcel Duchamp's readymades and their profound legacy in the transatlantic context of Dada and surrealism. This book embraces a broad range of art objects: consumer items such as the urinal and bottlerack that Duchamp "sneaked" into art exhibits; flea-market assemblages fabricated by his interwar avant-garde successors Man Ray, Andre Breton, Salvador Dali, Meret Oppenheim, and others; and the bricolage boxes of American surrealist Joseph Cornell
