This chapter deals with Marcel Broodthaers and his role as the traditional artist in contrast to Debord’s revolutionary perspective. It begins with an account of Broodthaers’ artistic works and endeavors, and his poetry which is reflective of Charles Baudelaire’s, along with an examination of the sonnet “Beauty” (La Beauté). It also states that Broodthaers’ primary concern is the market; and according to him, the goal of art and critique is commercial, along with the objective of stimulating a critical attitude towards the public presentation of art. The chapter also considers Broodthaers’ examination of the material features of conceptual art, such as handwriting, typewriting, and figures.

Keywords:   Marcel Broodthaers, Charles Baudelaire, La Beauté, conceptual art, handwriting, typewriting, figures
