VITO ACCONCI:
I HATED BEING CALLED AN ARTIST

“I hated being called an artist…” explains seminal performance artist Vito Acconci in this set of extended 2008 interview clips from our original filming of “making sh•t up,” which included conversations with Marina Abramović, Jerry Saltz, and more. Acconci describes the first major conceptual art show at MoMA in 1970, shares personal narrative, and voices antipathy about documentation-as-art: framed photos and notes of performances achieved a painting-like status, which seemed to both define and contain his future…
“You hope you leave a loose end, so you can get out.”
