A quote from the museum brochure:" Until I discovered Marcel Duchamp I had no idea that art could be a way of life (...) It was my salvation and immediately ended my struggle. I understood (...) that art could be a gesture, and such a gesture can take any shape the artist desires. It can become a painting, but also something completely different."
For me personally 2012 is the year I changed in the way I see my art, so this exhibition struck a nerve.
Nice detail: the museum is situated in what used to be a textile factory
