Duchamp Urinal

A fonte de Duchamp (1917). "Quando Marcel Duchamp desloca objetos de seus contextos cotidianos e os coloca no contexto da galeria e do museu, conforme a proposta do readymade, é a esfera da arte da tradição ocidental que se encontra em questão, investida como é de um caráter sagrado e dotado de valor de culto."

12 Delicious Marcel Duchamp Quotes To Unleash Your Inner Artist

Marcel Duchamp (28 July 1887 – 2 October 1968) was involved in the Dada movement. This is Fountain, made in 1917. It is, of course, a urinal. Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word.

Study reveals how we see ordinary objects labelled as art differently

The power of suggestion. And a scientific explanation why Duchamp's urinal is a work of art (not just a work of philosophy). But I don't think that "disinterestedness" is what happens in many of these cases. I'd say we are more disinterested with the Brillo boxes in the supermarket than the ones in the gallery. Warhol, Duchamp, Emin bring attention to (and raise interest in) these otherwise mundane objects. Also Elizabeth Burns and rhetorical and authenticating conventions.
