Duchamp Research Centre

About the Research Centre

The fascination that Duchamp’s complex oeuvre exerts on us remains unbroken right to the present day and inspired the Staatliches Museum Schwerin to establish the Duchamp Research Centre in 2009. Since then, artists, academics and scientists from throughout the world have been invited to examine and analyse the pieces in the Schwerin collection and discuss their research findings and results.

As a research facility within the museum in Schwerin, the centre is open to taking differing routes when examining and analysing the life and works of Marcel Duchamp as it pursues its mission of encouraging, supporting and accompanying innovative research. In this way, the Research Centre would like to inspire and maintain a lively discussion about Duchamp’s work along the interface between science, academia and the general public.
