Joseph Kosuth is one of the pioneers of Conceptual Art and Installation Art, initiating language based works and appropriation strategies since the 1960s. His work explores the nature of art by language and image. Words and images are visualized as objective as possible in his work, for example with neon tubing, in newspapers and by using photography. His more than thirty-year inquiry into the relation of language to art has taken the form of installations, museum exhibitions, public commissions and publications of his own writing throughout the world.
