“it’s the artist’s signature that largely makes the work of art”

“Indeed, this is what it has come to; it’s the artist’s signature that largely makes the work of art—[on the work or on a certificate]. Therefore in the case of this exhibition, an information sheet to be purely and unequivocally informative, can only bear a copy of a signature.”

— Marcel Broodthaers, Belgian, poet, filmmaker, photographer, artist
