The Arguments for and Against the Institutional Theory of Defining Art
Marcel Duchamp, Pharmacy, altered found painting, 1913. "Apropos of Readymades: in 1913 I had the happy idea to fasten a bicycle wheel to a kitchen stool and watch it turn. A few months later I bought a cheap reproduction of a winter-evening landscape, which I called 'Pharmacy' after adding two small dots, one red and one yellow, in the horizon." - Marcel Duchamp.
