Joseph Kosuth

Ni apparence ni illusion

Author(s): Marie-Laure  Bernadac, Joseph Kosuth, John Welchman

€ 49.00 tax included

This fall, the medieval Louvre houses an installation by American conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth. Since the mid-60s, Kosuth has focused on the connections between words and things, between language and representation, often with sentences in neon tubing. He chose to work in the moat of the medieval Louvre, writing on the ancient walls of the ramparts, the dungeon, and the Salle Saint-Louis, inviting visitors to enter this mysterious underground space.
