Talk:Conceptual writing

Hello. Sorry, I don't understand exactly the reason for the removal of Marcel Duchamp and especially John Cage from the category ("conceptual writing" is a category that is considered to extend way before the 2000s wave). Also, TROLL THREAD has been written everywhere in all caps - except in an interview with the collective, but if we ask them I'm almost sure they'll say that this spelling (all caps) is pretty much intentional and part of their aesthetic. Otherwise, thanks for picking up the work! --Yigruzeltil (talk) 02:35, 18 April 2017 (CEST)

Hello Yigru, first of all big thanks for the upload of your tremendous bibliography, what a piece of work! No less for starting this page as well, it was really long overdue. Re Duchamp & Cage: thematic pages in the Literature and other arts sections focus primarily on movements, and 'conceptual writing' emerged as such not long ago (mostly dated to the early 1990s). Major historical references are listed in a subsection at the bottom. TROLL THREAD is now capitalized. dusan (talk) 12:42, 18 April 2017 (CEST)
