Prepare to be shocked, titillated, amused or confused depending on your tastes and your previous encounters with ‘abstract literature’.
Johnson is offended and tells you that you can’t criticise Duchamp because all his works are blue-chip classics, and simultaneously function as the foundation stones of artistic modernism. You order another double espresso and tell Johnson to chill out, because if Duchamp were around today he’d agree with you. Then you placate the critic by offering to show him some interesting sex imagery on the web. Johnson hands over his laptop, which is his first mistake, and you go to Flickr. At first Johnson isn’t impressed but when you show him Flickr groups like ‘Public Nudity’, ‘Nude Insider’ and ‘Nude Photographer, Nude Models Contacts’ he changes his tune.
