Call for Proposals
The Staatliches Museum Schwerin/Ludwigslust/Güstrow has amongst its holdings one of the most important collections of works by the artist Marcel Duchamp (1887-1966) in Europe. This complex is comprised of 90 works. In connection with these holdings, the Duchamp Research Center was founded in 2009 with the goal of integrating the Schwerin Duchamp collection into international networks while encouraging and realizing interdisciplinary research projects.
In particular, the center wishes to attract young researchers from individual disciplines such as art history, cultural research, philosophy, literary research, musicology, and film and media research and encourage them to engage themselves with Marcel Duchamp`s work, and with his social and artistic context. They should be inspired to investigate his complex ideas in an independent research project.
