Introduction by Anu Vahtra.

“My Summer 77 with Gordon Matta-Clark” documents his last big spatial intervention, “Office Baroque”, in Antwerp in 1977. It is an addendum to a film made about “Office Baroque” in the 1970s and consists of never before seen archival materials, starting with Matta-Clark’s own comments on the project. “Jacob’s Ladder” is a documentary about the construction of Matta-Clark’s installation of the same name, dedicated to his twin brother, for Documenta 6 in Kassel in 1977.
