Item: Duchamp is our misfortune
|description||"The title: 'Duchamp Is Our Misfortune'...[is] an explicit reference, as many readers will know, to a notorious 19th-century German anti-Semitic slogan revived by Hitler's Nazis, one that is translated: 'The Jews are our misfortune.'...The first five panels show a seedy skinhead painting a blood-red swastika on a city wall. And then in the final panel, we see the portion of the wall with the swastika mounted on the wall of the Jewish Museum as part of its Mirroring Evil exhibition. And the skinhead being toasted by museumgoers for his 'art'." From "Honoring a Picket Line At the Jewish Museum", The New York Observer (April, 2002).||-|
