TJ Demos, Duchamp, Man Ray, Picabia, Dada and Exile TJ Demos discusses the form and function of "exile" in relation to the work of Duchamp, Man Ray, and Picabia, a term that both defines the experiential circumstances of Dadaist artists and inflects Dada's aesthetico-political commitment. During the early twentieth-century, a period of expanding capitalism and catastrophic world war, each of these artists produced experimental objects that mobilize unconventional materials and spaces, formal constructions and linguistic formulations in ways that negotiated the experience of geographical and political dislocation. Demos examines the link between art and politics in relation to Dada's aesthetics of exile. Further Reading TJ Demos, The Exiles of Marcel Duchamp (Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2007).
