Duchamp used for the first time the term “anartist” in 1959: ‘I am against the word “anti” because it’s a bit like an atheist, as opposed to a believer. And an atheist is just as much a religious man as the believer is, and an anti-artist is just as much of an artist as the other artist. Anartist would have been better. . . . Anartist, meaning no artist at all.’
