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." He states that "the space-time-matter of language is made perceptible, visible, by writing. Kosuth's work is a meditation on writing." 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.

Art is Life/Life is Art / Roth, Dieter ; Spector B ; Edwards K ; Williams E ; Mayer HJ ; Higgins D ; Drucker J ; Phillpot C., 1999

Identifier: CC-33498-35147
Scope and Contents

In her essay "The Myth and the Mythmaker," curator Kathleen Edwards wrote that Roth was influenced by Dadaism, Surrealism, Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, Fluxus and Conceptual Art. Buzz Spector contributed an essay "The Artist as Archivist, The Book as Body: Dieter Roth's Gesammelte Werke." He defined an Archive as a "repository of texts and/or images organized around a given subject. It provides for a relation of general equivalence between its components, and for a means of sorting through their accumulation. Unlike dictionaries or encyclopedias, which define words or ideas in relation to general linguistic or cultural models, and whose cognitive "force" is directed centrifugally, toward the margins of a discursive terrain, the force of the archive is centipetal, drawing in traces of its concern that coalesce to form clearer - which is to say, denser, more focused - insights into the meaning of its subject." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
