Edited by Gloria Moure

Contemporary Art, Performing Arts
Approached through a rigorous research process, the collection presents in-depth essays on the work of each artist in an attempt to cover the context in which it is produced.

Vito Acconci (1940 – 2017) was an influential American performance, video and installation artist, whose diverse practice eventually included sculpture, architectural design, and landscape design. His foundational performance and video art was characterized by "existential unease," exhibitionism, discomfort, transgression and provocation, as well as wit and audacity, and often involved crossing boundaries such as public–private, consensual–nonconsensual, and real world–art world.
