On the politics of American doctors
Duchamp on the shock of socialist realism
In an interview from mid-1960s, Marcel Duchamp observed that the only shocking thing in contemporary art was work being made in Russia, painted, he said, as “in the 1850s, very naturalistic and anecdotal.” For the Western public, that is, “for us who have been beyond and away from that,” Duchamp said, “when we see it today, it’s shocking to see the young girl at the window on the Red Square, seeing the parade of the soldiers.” Barry Schwabsky in @Artforum

Revision as a dynamic practice of revisitation
“I was beginning to understand revision as a dynamic practice of revisitation premised on ethically reimagining the ingredients, scope and primary audience of one’s initial vision. Revision required witnessing and testifying. Witnessing and testifying required rigorous attempts at remembering and imagining. If revision was not God, revision was everything every god ever asked of believers.” (Kiese Laymon)
“Black rhetorical abundance” Listened to this fabulous conversation btw @tressiemcphd & @KieseLaymon on the @ezraklein show. They talked about writing and the ethics of revision. Truly fascinating! Highly recommended. I mean it.
