Baby Duchamp

Mr and Mrs Marcel Duchamp are pleased to announce the birth of their child Baby Duchamp and many other little babies in all colours! At the start of this third millennium, let’s wish them happiness and a lot of courage because one century after the invention of ready-made items and contemporary art, the wheel is turning on its stool and everything starts over again.
Baby Duchamp, it’s state of the art child play!
