"Joseph Kosuth: Re-defining the Context of Art" is a theoretical reading of Kosuth's media-related practice and includes essays by Gabriele Guercio, John C Welchman and Joseph Kosuth himself. The book is richly illustrated with documentation of three groupings of works: "The Second Investigation," 1968; "Redefining the Context of Art" at MIT List Visual Arts Center, 1997; and his retrospective at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven in 2004. These exhibitions all addressed the 'context' of art by reframing Kosuth's public media works, such as on billboards or the television, within the gallery and also by employing media tactics, such as his public questionnaires, within an art setting.

Artist: Joseph Kosuth
