Who is Prigogine?
Here are two references to Duchamp, although I'm warning you, all this
takes place in a larger discussion of the logic of sensation, color, etc.,
so it's not all that easy to simply lift out of context as "this is what
Deleuze thinks of Duchamp". He's merely placing an artistic conflict into
Page. 40, footnote 1
Page 70, footnote 12 where it is related that Bacon admired Duchamp's
attitude but not his painting, for Duchamp was considered to be a
"stenographe de la figuration". This is related to the "Entretiens"
(Interviews, french edition), tome II, page. 74. In my English edition of
the interviews though (Francis Bacon - David Sylvester, 1993 edition), this
is (I think) a reference to page 105 where in fact Duchamp is called a
maker of "symbols of the figurative." Which is quite different.
Unfortunately I do not have the French edition so I cannot verify.
