Duchamp in a Cage fight

It sounds more violent than it was, but still, it must have been quite an occasion to attend. Fifty years ago father of conceptual art Marcel Duchamp and avant-garde composer John Cage played a game of musical chess. The moves on the electronic board automatically generated sounds, and a photographer (Shigeko Kubota) was present to document the happening, which was called Reunion. Full story in the linked art-icle.
