Art after Philosophy and After; Collected Writings, 1966-1990 / Kosuth, Joseph ; Lyotard JF., 1991

Identifier: CC-07921-8075
Scope and Contents

In a critical essay, Jean-Francois Lyotard writes of words as being "things," sentences are "events," and thought is "art."

Lyotard "compares Kosuth's visual works with the square letters of the Torah. These letters are also texts, but they are waiting for their accents, their vowels, their punctuation, their intonation, their putting into practice." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

This is especially true for artists, whose day-to-day acts of living and art-making overlap and inform each other. Artists' lists shed uncover a host of unbeknownst motivations, attitudes, and opinions about their work and the work of others. Lists presents almost seventy artifacts, including "to do" lists, membership lists, lists of paintings sold, lists of books to read, lists of appointments made and met, lists of supplies to get, lists of places to see, and lists of people who are "in."At times introspective, humorous, and resolute, but always revealing and engaging, Lists is a unique firsthand account of American cultural history that augments the personal biographies of some of the most...
