Object to be destroyed the work of Gordon Matta-Clark by Pamela M Lee( )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 1,963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although highly regarded during his short life - and honored by artists and architects today - the American artist Gordon Matta-Clark (1943-78) has been largely ignored within the history of art. Matta-Clark is best remembered for site-specific projects known as "building cuts." Sculptural transformations of architecture produced through direct cuts into buildings scheduled for demolition, these works now exist only as sculptural fragments, photographs, and film and video documentations. Matta-Clark is also remembered as a catalytic force in the creation of SoHo in the early 1970s

Art cards = fichas de arte by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 42 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."--P. [4] of cover
Splitting by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )

Walls paper by Gordon Matta-Clark( Book )
2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 39 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
