The Dissipation of Our Bodies Into the City
Thursday March 24, 1988 – Saturday April 23, 1988
The Dissipation of Our Bodies Into the City was the first gallery exhibition in the United States by the Austrian office Coop Himmelb(l)au. Their visionary work incorporated criticism, sculpture, prose poems, urban plans, manifestos, projects, actions, statements, sketches and commentary to suggest experiments in space, both internal and external. The exhibition included photographs of three previous projects, manipulated blueprint images titled The First New Step into New York: the bodies disappear, the structure remains, and a series of large photocopy-based drawings and collages.
