|May-28-15|| ||TheFocus: <All this twaddle, the existence of God, atheism, determinism, liberation, societies, death, etc., are pieces of a chess game called language, and they are amusing only if one does not preoccupy oneself with 'winning or losing' this game of chess> - Marcel Duchamp.|
|Jul-17-15|| ||ljfyffe: Duchamp, with 9 points out of a possible 10 placed first at the 1933-34 correspondence IFSB
league championship; he had two draws, one with E. Weiss and the other with Kracke, both of Germany.|
|Jul-28-15|| ||grasser: "Player of the Day" July 28, 2015. Like he is not famous enough. How about a Chess Teacher who was put on trial and fined $500 for offering free lessons without a "Permit"? When does he get "Player of the day? G Grasser vs L Winokur, 2014"?|
|Aug-05-15|| ||MissScarlett: <t is regarded as one of the most important artworks of the 20th century.|
The urinal displayed in an exhibition in New York in 1917 - is recognised as the first piece of conceptual art.
But a new exhibition in Edinburgh claims the work was not made by Marcel Duchamp but by a little-known female artist.>
|Sep-01-15|| ||Tomlinsky: <Duchamp Chess Set is a 3D-printed chess set generated from an archival photograph of Marcel Duchamp's own custom and hand-carved game. His original physical set no longer exists. We have resurrected the lost artifact by digitally recreating it, and then making the 3D files available for anyone to print. |
Inspired by Marcel Duchamp's readymade - an ordinary manufactured object that the artist selected and modified for exhibition - the readymake brings the concept of the appropriated object to the realm of the internet, exploring the web's potential to re-frame information and data, and their reciprocal relationships to matter and ideas. Readymakes transform photographs of objects lost in time into shared 3D digital spaces to provide new forms and meanings.
|Nov-16-15|| ||OhioChessFan: No naked lady, but a nice pic regardless:
|Nov-16-15|| ||keypusher: Chessbazaar also has a "Duchamp-inspired" set.
The set at <Tomlinsky>'s link looks much closer to Duchamp's own. But I do love chessbazaar's stuff.
|Nov-16-15|| ||MissScarlett: Have you seen the Hitler-Roosevelt set?|
|Nov-16-15|| ||Domdaniel: I admit to being a longtime Duchamp fan: an admirer of his art, a follower of his conceptual stance, and an interested spectator of his chess -- he may well have been stronger than me.|
It is interesting that many regular CG posters are also Duchampians. It suggests that those chess players who enjoy using words, language, puns, visual images -- all Duchamp tropes -- are more likely to enjoy his work and to post on CG.
|Nov-16-15|| ||keypusher: <MissScarlett> Yes, and it's as exciting as some hobbyist's paint-by-numbers soldier figurines. If you're going to have human chess pieces -- and really, you shouldn't -- you need to go completely over the top. Artistic talent also helps.|
|Nov-16-15|| ||keypusher: It's amazing the things you find on the web.
Needs a better set of black pieces.
|Nov-16-15|| ||Domdaniel: < the things you find on the web. >|
|Nov-16-15|| ||TheFocus: Baby birds?
|Dec-23-15|| ||Richard Taylor: Yes, Duchamp was a great artist and innovator. When he gave up art for chess (he didn't actually stop completely) it must have seemed strange. |
The great German artist Beuys did an installation I think it was that said:
"The silence of Duchamp is [exaggerated]" I'm not sure of the exact quote.
But in a book about the Irish artist O'Dougherty (I discussed him briefly with Domdaniel) it is revealed that that artist had a lot to do with Duchamp in his later years. There is an interesting YouTube with a discussion by O'Dougherty who was also Patrick Ireland and other cognomens: he deals with his own art and an art work centred on Duchamp himself. He doesn't say he was as influenced by Duchamp as some critics have said. But he liked or was very interested in his ideas. Also the books by Flann O'Brien and much else.
|Dec-23-15|| ||Pulo y Gata: "I threw the bottle-rack and the urinal into their faces as a challenge and now they admire them for their aesthetic beauty." |
- Marcel Duchamp, in a letter to Hans Richter

|Mar-05-16|| ||OhioChessFan: Per <Dom> and the Duchamp fans, I think one thing he has going for him is that he's always interesting. It's an amazingly rare trait.|

|Mar-22-16|| ||Mudphudder: What was the approximate ELO rating strength of Duchamp?|
|Mar-23-16|| ||duchamp64: <Mudfudder> At his peak (circa 1929), Duchamp was about 2350 - 2400.|
|Mar-23-16|| ||Mudphudder: Wow. Much stronger than I would have guessed looking over his games here. |
Where did you get that estimate?
|Mar-24-16|| ||OhioChessFan: Bicycle Wheel- https://imageobjecttext.files.wordp...|
|Apr-24-16|| ||OhioChessFan: 'I force myself to contradict myself in order to avoid conforming to my own taste.'|
|Apr-24-16|| ||OhioChessFan: <Mud> I'd have guessed 2400 myself, just based on his career.|
