Video Art 9 - Vito Acconci, Centers (1971) [Excerpt]

Is over six thousand YouTube views (in about eighteen months) for a classic of early seventies video art a lot or a little? The full video runs for about twenty minutes. Acconci's position does not change.

The guy who uploaded all these classic Acconci clips deserves a prize.
