“It is a time for fragments”, remarked the artist Marcel Duchamp to the author Anaïs Nin while she was visiting him in his Paris studio in 1934. He was referring specifically to the documentation of his work The Large Glass, for which he collected scraps of writing and graphic material in a green box. In a world whose unity and totality was being placed in doubt both by physics and societal upheavals, Duchamp felt that the fragment was the only viable form of artistic action.
