Join Mary Ann Caws, Thierry de Duve, David Joselit, Sophie Seita, and Elizabeth Zuba for an evening of Dada-inspired conversation, with a special focus on New York Dada magazine The Blind Man, edited by Marcel Duchamp, Henri-Pierre Roché and Beatrice Wood in 1917, recently republished in a facsimile edition by Ugly Duckling Presse. These eminent scholars will discuss Duchamp’s role in the emergence of New York Dada, Modernist editorial practices, and the community of artists and writers that contributed to the formation of avant-garde discourses in the United States during the early 20th century. The discussion will be moderated by UDP editor Matvei Yankelevich. Copies of The Blind Man facsimile edition, named one of the Best Art Books of 2017 by the New York Times, will be available for purchase at the event.

Co-sponsored by Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative, and Ugly Duckling Presse, and the Center for the Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
