Vito Acconci
*1940 in the Bronx, New York; lives in Brooklyn, New York
From the end of the 60s Acconci realized numerous performances developing a dialogue between camera and body. Simultaneously object and subject of his projects, body - and its position in space - became the focus of his artistic work. Acconci’s performances explored the relationship between artist and spectator and questioned the border between public and private spaces. Since the late 70s, he has designed architectural and installation works for public spaces.
