Vintage Prints


Quite conscious of the impermanence of his work, Matta-Clark tried as far as was possible to document his urban interventions, his performances, and his actions in abandoned buildings. In addition to his removals and photographic collages – both considered as fully-fledged artworks – there also exist a great number of films, drawings, letters, preliminary studies, notes and other documents. About this, he says: ‘... that’s what I like about the whole documentation process (…) if it’s not worth documenting, it’s not worth having.’

The M HKA has a number of these vintage prints: photographic prints made by (or at least contemporaneous to) Matta-Clark.
