In the collection of Morton feldman’s volume of essays is one relating to a seminar that he held in Frankfurt in February 1984. Here’s one entry from that seminar:

“There is this marvelous story about Duchamp and an art student in San Francisco many years ago. Duchamp goes to that art school and he sees this kind of tough, macho San Francisco painter and Duchamp looks at the picture he doesn’t know. He says to the fellow, “What are you doing?” And the painter says, “I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing.” Duchamp pats him on the back and says, “Keep up the good work!”
