Duchamp and Sweden—On the Reception of Marcel Duchamp after World War II
28–30 April 2015

Moderna Museet


This upcoming symposium gathers leading researchers, experts and curators on the legacy of Marcel Duchamp and his works after World War II in talks and discussions on new research during three days at Moderna Museet, Stockholm. This will be a unique opportunity for researchers, art historians, curators, students and others interested in Duchamp to meet and connect.

Thirty works in Moderna Museet’s collection are attributed to Marcel Duchamp, which makes it one of the world’s leading collections of Duchamp works next to the holdings of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the USA. Moderna Museet also holds some of the earliest replicas made by the art critic Ulf Linde (1929–2014), replicas that were made before the art historian and collector Arturo Schwartz and the artist Richard Hamilton produced their reconstructions of Marcel Duchamp’s works.

Among the speakers at this symposium are Cécile Debray, Curator, Musée national d’art moderne, Centre Pompidou, Paris; Paul B. Franklin, freelance researcher and editor of Étant donné, Paris, Dr. Gerhard Graulich, Director of the Department of Painting and Associate Director of the Staatliches Museum Schwerin, Marcel Duchamp Research Center Schwerin; Adina Kamien-Kazhdan, David Rockefeller Curator, Department of Modern Art, Israel Museum, Jerusalem; Alexander Kauffman, PhD Candidate, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia; Derek Pullen, Director, SculpConsLtd, former Head of Sculpture Conservation, Tate, London; Kornelia Röder, Curator of the Marcel Duchamp collection at the Staatliches Museum Schwerin, Marcel Duchamp Research Center, Schwerin; and Michael R. Taylor, Director at Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College.

The symposium is held in close collaboration with the Art History departments at Stockholm University and Södertörn University.
