About this event

Medal of Honor for Achievement in Fine Arts

Joseph Kosuth

Joseph Kosuth is one of the pioneers of Conceptual art and installation art, initiating language-based works and appropriation strategies in the 1960s. His work has consistently explored the production and role of language and meaning within art. His more than fifty-year inquiry into the relation of language to art has taken the form of installations, museum exhibitions, public commissions and publications throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia, including seven Documenta(s) and eight Venice Biennale(s). Awards include the Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French government and the Laurea Honoris Causa, doctorate in Philosophy and Letters from the University of Bologna.

Born in Toledo, Ohio, he has functioned as visiting professor and guest lecturer at various universities and institutions for nearly forty years, including Yale University, Cornell University, New York University, Cooper Union, Art Institute of Chicago, Royal Academy, Copenhagen, Oxford University, Berlin Kunstakademie, and The Sorbonne, Paris. Presently he holds the Millard Chair at Goldsmiths, Department of Fine Arts, University of London.
