Vito Acconci's 1971 instructions in case he should die in a plane crash

(Via The Museum of Modern Art Library)


    1. Wait until you hear about the performance under the ramp before you make your final decision.

    2. He’s one of my favorite artists, who has had an amazing trajectory – from poetry, to performance to architecture. But a lot of his stuff is.. extreme. 

  1. It seems to raise more questions than it answers.  Who were the instructions *to*?  How did he prevent bad people who might burgle his appartment from seeing that he was out of town for a few days?
