Monkeys' Right to Paint and the Post-Duchamp Crisis (1994) is an art history book by Turkish artist Bedri Baykam. It brings to light the rights of non-western artists and severely criticizes the one sided prejudiced attitude of the western art establishment that keeps building a one sided, all western art-history.

Bedri Baykam contends that Duchamp is the first original modern artist since he was the first not to rely on non-western art.
