Abstract

Hierdie artikel bied 'n filosofies-besinnende oorsig oor konseptuele kuns. Ek argumenteer dat, soos wat die projek die grense van boekwees oorskry en konseptueel uitbrei, dit in geheel 'n konseptuele en taalgebaseerde kunsinstallasie is wat uit verskeie komponente, naamlik kunstenaarsboeke, bestaan. Hierdie saamgestelde konseptuele kunsinstallasie daag vanweë die interdissiplinêre aard daarvan, die grense van konseptuele kuns uit. Hierdie projek en uitstallings bevestig dat kunstenaarsboeke 'n ideale medium is om kunstenaars uit verskillende dissiplines by die spel met en ontdekking van die moontlikhede van die boek te betrek. Die projek kan in die geheel as konseptuele kuns getipeer word omdat die konsep herdink, herskep en oor gefilosofeer word.


This article offers a philosophical overview of conceptual art. I argue that, since the project transgresses and conceptually extends the boundaries of the concept of the book, it can be viewed in its entirety as a language-based installation art, consisting of various components, viz. artists' books. Due to its interdisciplinary nature, this conceptual art installation challenges the boundaries of conceptual art. The project and exhibitions confirm that artists' books constitute an ideal medium to involve artists from divergent disciplines in the play with and discovery of the possibilities of the book. The project as a whole can be categorised as conceptual art, as it reconsiders, reinvents and theorises the concept .
