The aim of this book about the work of Joseph Kosuth is to emphasize the importance and success of a creation that was conceived, created and installed by him on the Island of San Lazzaro off Venice for the 52nd Biennale International Art Exhibition, held in Venice in 2007. The work in question, entitled 'The Language of Equilibrium', consists of a huge piece of writing in yellow neon lights, about 150 meters long, which was installed around the perimeter wall of the Island of San Lazzaro, seat of the important Armenian Monastery, on the bell-tower and at the jetty. The work in question, entitled 'The Language of Equilibrium', consists of a huge piece of writing in yellow neon lights, about 150 meters long, which was installed around the perimeter wall of the Island of San Lazzaro, seat of the important Armenian Monastery, on the bell-tower and at the jetty. The words which appear in yellow neon lights are the result of an in-depth analysis by the artist on the theme of water, and the relationship between this key primary element and the intellectual and linguistic concepts associated with it. Kosuth is one of the main exponents of conceptual art and he has always played around with the etymology of words. The design and materials of this bilingual book, published in English and Italian, has been curated by the artist himself and is one of his series of books about the work of various artists. The book contains numerous photographs by photographer Daniele Nalesso. It includes a few articles including an introduction by curator Adelina von Fustenberg, a critical text by art historian Martin Prinzhorn and an interview given by the artist to Germano Celant
