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.
