Taste is transient, and it canít be trusted, least of all our own. We can change our taste at the drop of a hat.
The idea of having a text and an image as an object stimulates the notion of having a text that is there and then not there, is visible and then not visible. It is the establishment of and ambiguous object.
Things out of sight continue to exist.
One of the myths was that all good and great artists did it all by hand, their own hand. Good and great art was individually hand-made. A myth in every way, and a story that is quite untrue. Artists have always used any aid or apparatus, machine or technology if it would make their job easier and better.
Koons takes low-kitsch ideas and makes them into high-art products. Accepted values are turned upside down. His banal subjects become desired objects. Kitsch has become high art.
...Duchamp is saying that art is an intellectual occupation and not a retinal emotional response.
