Object to be destroyed : the work of Gordon Matta-Clark by Pamela M Lee( )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 2,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."--Jacket

Cutting Matta-Clark : the anarchitecture investigation by Mark Wigley( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the many shows at the fabled 112 Greene Street gallery - an artistic epicenter of New York's downtown scene in the 1970s - the Anarchitecture group show of March 1974 has been the subject of the most enduring discussion, despite a complete lack of documentation about it. Anarchitecture has become a foundational myth, but one that remains to be properly understood. Stemming from a series of meetings organized by Gordon Matta-Clark and reflecting his long-standing interest in architecture, the Anarchitecture exhibition was conceived as an anonymous group statement in photographs about the intersection of art and building. But did it actually happen? It exists only through oblique archival traces and the memories of the participants. Cutting Matta-Clark investigates the Anarchitecture group as a kind of collective research seminar, through extensive interviews with the protagonists and a dossierof all the available evidence. The dossier includes a collection of Matta-Clark's aphoristic 'art cards', the 96 photographs that were produced by the various participants for possible inclusion in the exhibition, and images from a recently unearthed video of Matta-Clark's now famous bus trip to see Splitting in Englewood, New Jersey
Art cards = fichas de arte by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1970 to 1978, Gordon Matta-Clark scribbled on index cards he carried with him from Lower Manhattan to Santiago de Chile, from Ithaca to Paris and New Jersey. This book compiles all those Art Cards. Among political statements, biographical stories, puns and reflections on Anarchitecture and on the sounds of the lights in spaces, the foundations of Matta-Clark's Conical Intersect and Office Baroque, the Fake Estates and the Food restaurant peer out. But, above all, a new literary form of writing emerges."--Page [4] of cover
Gordon Matta-Clark by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guiado por el deseo de alteridad en el arte, los conceptos arquitectónicos de Matta-Clark le llevan a desestructurar, mutilar y combinar piezas en el espacio, creando no-lugares, espacios imposibles dentro de lo que el artista llamó "anarquitectura" -investigación semiótica arquitectónica en torno al desmembramiento de las partes- y su exploración dentro del arte a partir del agotamiento de la pintura impuesto por la corriente minimalista

"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
Gordon Matta-Clark : works and collected writings by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

18 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La muestra recoge fotografías, foto-collages, dibujos y las 19 películas realizadas por el artista entre 1971 y 1977. La estructura expositiva se desarrolla a través de un entramado de ideas e intereses extraídos de los textos de Matta-Clark (la idea de la no secuencia, tiempo, alquimia, entropía, geometría, relación con la cultura, movimiento, experiencia, memoria, inmersión en lo social, espacio político, valoración de la colaboración, anonimato, etc.), dejando constancia de cómo los trabajos de Matta-Clark se enraízan en una tradición que comienza por la redefinición de la escultura y del espacio y culmina con una inmersión en el espacio urbano, donde se entrelazan lo plástico, lo visual, lo espacial, lo arquitectónico y la interacción política y social

Walls paper by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

2 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
