The play of the unmentionable : an installation by Joseph Kosuth at the Brooklyn Museum by Joseph Kosuth( Book )

16 editions published in 1992 in English and Spanish and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the height of the controversy over government funding for "obscene" works of art, internationally renowned conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth created "The Brooklyn Museum Collection: The Play of the Unmentionable," an exhibit about censorship at The Brooklyn Museum. His installation, one of the best-attended, most widely reviewed (and most controversial) of the year, juxtaposed works of art from throughout history that had been deemed politically, religiously, or sexually objectionable, with statements about the role of art in society by writers as diverse as Oscar Wilde, Adolf Hitler, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Using artworks drawn from the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Museum, "The Play of the Unmentionable" showed graphically how public and institutional ideas of obscenity and artistic value have changed throughout history - and continue to change today. This handsome book documents the exhibit with twenty-one pages of color and more than a hundred duotone photographs, and is designed to recapture the installation's juxtapositions of artworks and texts. In a major essay, art historian David Freedburg offers a detailed analysis of the installation, setting it in both the context of America's "culture wars" of the late 1980s, and of Kosuth's career. The Brooklyn Museum's director, Robert Buck, and its creator of contemporary art, Charlotta Kotik, also add critical perspectives; and Kosuth himself articulately describes his objectives in an interview. The result is a book that both represents the work of a major contemporary artist and boldly steps into the middle of the most controversial arguments about art and culture in America today. -- from dust jacket

Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Joseph Kosuth, Sol Lewitt, Robert Morris, Lawrence Weiner by Seth Siegelaub( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book exhibition--also known as The Xerox Book--was organized and published by Seth Siegelaub in 1968. Both presenting a range of artists associated with Siegelaub's curatorial practice and utilizing unconventional modes of exhibition, this book marks [the] ongoing attempt by Siegelaub to show work outside of the gallery setting, and his first time showing an exhibition in book form. Furthermore, Siegelaub asked each artist in the exhibition to create 25 pages of work that responded to the photocopy format. Though the Xerox process proved financially unfeasible--the works ultimately being reproduced through the more conventional printing press--the book continued to be referred to as "The Xerox Book," preserving its association with the then-new photocopy technology"--PrimaryInformation.org website, viewed June 14, 2016
