Through loft activities, site projects at the exhibition space 112 Greene Street, and his work at the restaurant Food, he participated in the production of a new social and artistic space."--BOOK JACKET. "In this first critical account of Matta-Clark's work, Lee considers it in the context of the art of the 1970s - particularly site-specific, conceptual, and minimalist practices - and its confrontation with issues of community, property, the alienation of urban space, the "right to the city," and the ideologies of progress that have defined modern building programs."--BOOK JACKET

Walls paper by Gordon Matta-Clark ( Book )
3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Increased attention to the development potential of international migration has led to calls for greater global cooperation and for industrial countries to consider temporary worker programs and other options for increasing the number of immigrants admitted. But less attention has been devoted to policies that migrant-sending countries pursue that impact on the ability of people to emigrate under the existing system. This paper documents the existence and impact of two such policies: passport costs and legal restrictions on emigration. New data collected on passport costs in 127 countries reveals enormous variation in the cost of a passport from one country to the next. One in every 10 countries in the sample is found to have passport costs exceeding 10 percent of annual per capita income. High passport costs are found to be associated with poor governance, especially in terms of the quality of the bureaucracy, and with lower levels of migration. Countries that place legal restrictions on the rights of women to emigrate are also found to have lower migration rates than countries with similar income and population levels. These findings suggest there is scope for some developing countries to receive greater benefits from migration by tearing down the paper walls they place around their own citizens

"Automation House: This tape is an exercise in spatial perception, using mirror reflections of people and their movements. Producer: Carlotta Schoolman. Clockshower: In this film of one of his most daring performances, Matta-Clark climbed to the top of the Clocktower in New York and washed, shaved and brushed his teeth while suspended over the streets in front of the huge clockface. City Slivers: This film is a formal investigation of New York's urban architecture. The film was planned to be projected on the exterior facade of a building, and was shown for the first time in the open air exhibition ARCADES and later in the Holly Solomon Gallery."--Electronic Arts Intermix website
