Abstract :
Starting out from a casual remark attributed to Michael Baxandall, his wishing 'to redo Roger Fry from nature', the article sets up a dialogue between Marcel Duchamp and Ludwig Wittgenstein. This takes place on the grounds of their understanding of the relation between language and nature on the one hand and a possible interweaving of each others epistemology on the other. Without further referring to Michael Baxandall himself, this interplay sets out a means of thinking through his art-historical problematics in what amounts to a parable of the coming to visual knowledge. Duchamp and Wittgenstein slide between positions and possibilities in a play of uncertainty in which neither that which can be positively known nor the object of speculation can be endowed with any privilege in art's discourses. [Includes discussion of Rainer Maria Rilke's art theory]. ;
