The aim of the book is not just to compare their work, but to describe the circling of ideas and strategies in the art world from a non-hierarchical perspective. The book is published on the occasion of “Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect. Anu Vahtra: Completion through removal“, an exhibition in the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn, February 22 – June 8, 2019, organised in cooperation between the Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Kumu Art Museum, curated by Sergio Bessa, Jessamyn Fiore, and Anu Allas.

Gordon Matta-Clark (1943 -1978) was an American artist best known for his site-specific artworks he made in the 1970s.
Anu Vahtra (1982) is an artist working in the photo- and installation medium, and who focuses on exhibition format and specifics of exhibition space, initiated by architectural characters, and a historical and contextual background.
