Abstract
 
Description
From his radical performances at the beginning of the 70s to the unusual architectural designs he's created since the end of the 80s, Vito Acconci has more often than not concerned himself with the definition of the public via the body. Courtyard in the Wind, created for the Munich architectural department's new home, was the first permanent structure by Acconci to be realized in a public space. A revolving ring of landscapes set in the building's courtyard, the sculpture moves with the help of the wind power plant Acconci built on top of the building's tower. The book at hand is the first to document this project and also the first to consider the paradigm of architectural designs created by Acconci Studio. Also included are texts by Acconci about the body, architecture and public space, and an instructive essay by Heinz Schtz which reviews Acconci's works from the last decades and opens up the horizon against which Courtyard in the Wind is set. - from Amzon
