Readymades Made in China

Readymades are mass-produced commercially available objects that the artist Marcel Duchamp designated as art by merely selecting, and sometimes slightly modifying, them. He believed that an artist could elevate a common ordinary object to the status of art by just saying it is so. Nowadays, China is the world's leading manufacturer of the common and everyday readymade.
