Find out more about Dancing around Duchamp

Rrose Sélavie, or Rose Sélavy, was one of Duchamp’s pseudonyms; a female persona, acted out by Duchamp and photographed by Man Ray. The name is a pun on the French for ‘eros, that's life’.

For this programme, we explore how film and video have become a means for the expression of sexual behaviour and preference outside the mainstream. Carol Schneeman’s controversial film Fuses (1964) and Jean Genet’s banned film Un Chant d’amour (1950) are screened in conjunction with other key works.
