JOSEPH KOSUTH ART AFTER PHILOSOPHY PDF

J oseph Kosuth was 24 in when he wrote his seminal essay, Art After Philosophy. One of the key figures in the conceptual art movement of the s, who rejected a conventional understanding of art in favour of focusing on the ideas behind the work, he has maintained a career as a curator and writer as his pieces have been exhibited across the world, featuring in the permanent collections of major museums with career retrospectives travelling across Europe. So Kosuth is reasonably surprised when, sitting on a metal stool at one end of a stark, whitewashed room covered in his works in Flinders Lane, Melbourne, I tell him that his art — which has not been seen much in Australia — is relatively new to me. He is known for having high-profile connections, and when conversation turns to politics, the anecdotes begin to flow.
