Excerpt from a review of 557,087
“In Kosuth’s piece [‘a series of cards, part of a larger work entitled Art as Idea as Idea’], the slender physicality of the cards is reluctant, but the philosophy is honest; Kosuth risks the embarrassment of trying to find answers in his typed outline, rather than merely, hiply, ‘posing questions.’ ”
From Peter Plagens, “557,087,” Artforum 8, no. 3 (November 1969): 64–67.
