The Duchess and the Urinal with John Higgs


Odditorium favourite John Higgs returns to challenge the ‘truth’ of one of the most famous pieces of art of the 20th century: Duchamp’s ‘Fountain’. Higgs presents the case that a bohemian sexual adventuress, Baroness Von Elsa Freytag-Loringhoven, was actually behind Duchamp’s creation, and that the history of the conceptual art movement really began with her.
