notes to the above
i: the brilliant marcel duchamp knew: accidents chance luck errors, these make life these also make art
ii: act rather than desire (you know this means you)
iii: reality is poorly understood: it ought not to be given but formed through experience and thought
iv: necessarily in the C20th artistic self-obsession replaced the artistic object but that time ought now to have passed
v: required - a strong sense of self and no real sense of self
vi: even in the kakistocratic art world sooner or later some work is needed
vii: not every rembrandt is a work of genius but every rembrandt is worth a lot of money
viii: how else can the inane v: be explained?
ix: black and white stories (sometimes) change careers
x: what we are all about all too often
