Description

Joseph Kosuth made two installations in Oxford as part of ‘The Reading Room’ Project, for the particular contexts of the Taylor Institution and of the Divinity School of the Bodleian Library. This book configures these works back to back; ‘The (Ethical) Space of Cabinets 7 & 8’ is printed vertically while ‘Say: I Do Not Know’ is printed horizontally.

Both works put in apposition texts by Voltaire and John Locke. The ideas explored in the original installations are expounded in the book through the manipulation of the book format, utilising die-cut windows, tracing paper pages and two-colour printing. Designed by Joseph Kosuth in collaboration with Rose-Innes Associates. Two Oxford Reading Rooms (Special edition) is printed offset in an edition of 250 signed and numbered copies with two colour printing, 112 pages with silver-gilt edges and hard cover with slip-case.
