Description Lavishly illustrated, extensive essay offering perspectives on dada, contemporary art and gender by David Hopkins Published to accompany the show of the same name, Dada's Boys is the brainchild of David Hopkins, Professor of Art History at Glasgow University, an acknowledged authority on Marcel Duchamp and surrealism and a writer on contemporary art. In it, Hopkins uses a new idea about the dada work of Duchamp, Francis Picabia and Man Ray as the basis for a discussion of recent art. Identifying a hitherto under-researched 'Duchampian discourse around male identity', Accessible to students and non-academics alike this book also includes the work of Knut Asdam, Matthew Barney, John Bock, Roderick Buchanan, Angus Fairhurst, Keith Farquhar, Douglas Gordon, Damien Hirst, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Sarah Lucas, Paul McCarthy and Richard Prince.
