Duchamp Research Centre



In 1997 the Staatliche Museum Schwerin acquitted a collection of works by Marcel Duchmap from Ronny van de Velde.

Besides the scientific examination of the own collection, the Duchamp Research Centre, founded in 2009, serves as a platform for research about Duchamp. In 2011 the series “Poiesis” was initiated by the Research Centre documenting research results.
