  • Elsa’s Urinal – why the seminal work should be reattributed to the woman who made it. Talk with Dr Glyn Thompson

    The starting point of the story is an encounter with Duchamp, seminal 20th century conceptual artist, in which we discover that the artist cited for changing modern thinking, stole the idea of the seminal ‘Urinal’ from Baroness Elsa von Freytag – a Woman. The Facts Behind the Façade. Art Historian Dr. Glyn Thompson talking about the de-attribution of the urinal from Duchamp’s oeuvre, and its consequent attribution to that of Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, completely overturns establishment orthodoxy by reconfiguring the disposition of evidence hitherto marginalised and suppressed in the sustaining of the dominant myths of the Duchamp master narrative.
