Curiously enough, although Duchamp considered eroticism as the main topic of his work, no essay had really focused on that matter yet. This book collects the lectures of about twenty international art historians and critics during a symposium organized by Marc Décimo.
Contributions by Marc Décimo, Jean Suquet, Michael R. Taylor, Patrick de Haas, James McManus, Julian Bourg, Sébastien Rongier, Lewis C. Kachur, David A. Gerstner, Tania Lorandi, Fae Brauer, Gavin Parkinson, Derek Sayer, Philippe Dagen, Elfreide Dreyer, Leah Sweet, Frédérique Joseph-Lowery, Ornella Volta, Cécile Bargues et Séverine Gossart.
