Hanna Regev

& Steven Lopez

“The fact that chess could engage the thought and activity Duchamp had devoted to art bespeaks several issues.

The chess game engages both parties not only in a cerebral battle of wits, but also places each man in the other's mind: a shared problem, a common space inhabited and possessed through deeper and deeper imaginings and projections and evasions. Just as the nude exposes movement, the man on the train reveals emotion, and the glass cryptically illuminates narrative, so the chess game points to the strategy and obfuscates the means.

Added to this intellectual stimulation is also an element of addiction. The complete absorption of concentration, which magically disappears the corporal world at the same time invades and consumes”.
