No Exit: Video and the Readymade

by David Joselit

October, Winter 2007, no. 119, pp. 37-45

The author looks at the artistic concept of the readymade by delving into Nam June Paik's idea that the only medium that Marcel Duchamp never worked in was video. This is used to look at video's connection to the readymade and how it conforms to and subverts from the practices of the medium.
