A close reading of Kuspit’s
Avant-Guarde and Audience and Greenberg’s Avant-Guarde and Kitsch. Relate the
readings to F. T. Marinetti’s “Futurist Serate” and “Zang Tumb Tuuum” (that I will support
with his “The Variety Theatre Manifesto”) and Marcel Duchamp’s readymade works,
focusing on “Fountain” and “The Three Standard Stoppages” (that I will support with his
essential writings, “The Creative Act” and “Apropos of “Readymades””). Through the
theorized claims of Kuspit and Greenberg, explore Marinetti’s and Duchamp’s role
in the progression of the avant-guarde.
