Poet, filmmaker, and artist Marcel Broodthaers used his practice to make incisive political statements and critique art institutions. In one of his most famous works, Broodthaers mounted an exhibition as a single work titled Musée d’Art Moderne (1968). The piece included hundreds of readymade and fabricated objects, each labeled with the words “This is not a work of art,” a homage to his biggest influences, Marcel Duchamp and René Magritte. In fact, Magritte once gave Broodthaers a copy of Stéphane Mallarmé’s Un Coup de Des, which would become an instrumental source of inspiration for the artist. Broodthaers’ practice is based on re-appropriation and re-presentation of other artists’ work, and is often described by critics and historians as wry, witty, and rebellious. His short active career spanned only 12 years.
