The Red Tapes.
Art Metropole, 1988. Item #2740
VHS video tape in original hard plastic case. Part of the "Art Metropole 1/2 inch Videotape Series." "Between 1968 and 1977, Acconci made close to a hundred motion pictures, ranging from three and a half minutes (the length of one Super 8 cassette) to a hundred and forty-one. The longest, The Red Tapes (1977), was a summation and one of the great works of American avant-garde cinema, a bare but epic history of the self and of America, indebted to Gertrude Stein’s The Making of Americans (1925), Richard Hofstadter’s The Paranoid Style in American Politics (1964), film noir, and Jean-Luc Godard." Amy Taubin. We have not viewed this copy, however the tape is intact and appears to be in fine condition. Original Art Metropole price sticker on back of the case.
