Vito Acconci: Pieces from 1970 to 1982 (November 11, 1982)01:52:49

Acconci reviews his work from 1970 to 1982. He begins by explaining how he started as a writer. First he describes what thoughts and circumstances made him switch disciplines to become an artist. He explains the evolution of his work, and how each one of his projects evolves into the next one. He describes the projects in detail, and tries to reproduce the users experience by doing live performances and descriptions of the audio of several installations. He focuses specially on the questions he asks himself after a project is finished and how these thoughts lead him to the next stage of his work.
