NOTATIONS FOR THINKING a selection
[dip] is delighted to present Joseph Kosuth’s first solo exhibition in Ticino, Switzerland.
A pioneer of Conceptual art and installation art, Joseph Kosuth (b. 1945, USA) has been initiating language based works and appropriation strategies since the 1960s.
For NOTATIONS FOR THINKING a selection, Kosuth has devised a neon installation work referring to the writings of the German writer Herman Hesse who was based in the region for over forty years. The work will span fourteen meters and wrap around the walls of the main gallery space.
Alongside this new work, the exhibition features a selection of recent works and demonstrates Kosuth’s longstanding enquiry into the perception, the use of neon as a medium, as well as the appropriated use of literature, philosophy and psychology.
