112 Greene Street was an artist-run space in Soho where many artists associated with post-minimalism exhibited. The catchy but never clearly defined phrase “Anarchitecture” was not only the name of this exhibition but also of a loosely organized group of artists led by the artist and theorist Gordon Matta-Clark. It is a term that applies especially well to Matta-Clark’s best-known works that involved the slicing and dissection of buildings. Anarchitecture was re-staged at the Tate Modern in London in 2005.
