Joseph Kosuth

Nicht im vorliegenden Sachverhalt, Lesliehof, 2015

For his work in the Lesliehof, Joseph Kosuth connects light with a theory that establishes a reference to the night sky. The quote comes from Johannes Kepler – a great historic figure in mathematics and astronomy and a staunch Protestant who was forced to leave Graz during the Counter-Reformation. 200 years later, the founding of the Joanneum at this location also served as a political statement making knowledge accessible to all. 


This project is part of the exhibition Light that presents three projects in the public space and one international conference to the topic in the Joanneum District.
