In August 1946 Marcel Duchamp spent a few days at the Bellevue Hotel near Chexbres (today, Le Baron Tavernier). During his stay he discovered the Forestay waterfall. There was never a research, why the artist chose this waterfall and not another one to become the starting point and eventually the landscape of his famous final masterpiece: “Etant donnés: 1° la chute d’eau, 2° le gaz d’éclairage” (Given: 1. The Waterfall, 2. The Illuminating Gas). We will answer this question with a multidisciplinary event. We hope you will join us on this unique occasion.
