Intro
Comparing the aspects of the work of Onno Boekhoudt with that of Marcel Duchamp. It points out comparable attitudes, not forms. Both their work show intellectuality and philosophical attitudes. The work of Boekhoudt belongs to the field of contemporary jewellery as much as it does to art which is comparable to Duchamp. Duchamp invented retinism for example, and Boekhoudt invented pining and brooching.
