Short Term Eternity brings together two artists—Gordon Matta-Clark (1943–1978, USA) and Anu Vahtra (1982, Estonia)—whose practices are related to each other in many ways, even if they were born in different times and locations. The aim of the book is not just to compare their work, but to describe the circling of ideas and strategies in the art world from a non-hierarchical perspective. The book was published on the occasion of Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect. Anu Vahtra: Completion through removal, an exhibition at the Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn, 22.02. – 8.06.2019, curated by Sergio Bessa, Jessamyn Fiore, and Anu Allas.
