Perception

Joseph Kosuth is a protagonist of the 1970s analytical conceptual art. Theoretical reflection on art has the same status as the work of art itself, which no longer requires physical realisation. The museum shows a text by Heinrich Heine, written with neon tubes, with which Kosuth evokes the power of phantasy. A lightly sloping footbridge starts at the beginning of the exhibition hall and leads the visitor zigzagging through it, thus making it possible to move through the installation.
