The Empty Studio

Ahmet Öğüt (TK) -

On March 21st 1979, American Artist, Chris Burden made a live performance of ‘send me your money’ on KPFK radio in Los Angeles.

Burden’s reputation as a performance artist is based on his controversial performances, particularly during the 1970’s in which the idea of personal danger as artistic expression was central to his work.

‘Send me your money’ is a spoken word piece in which Burden asks listeners to send the artist some money to his address at 823 Ocean Front Walk, Venice, California 90291.

Ahmet Öğüt has made a re-work of this 1979 piece for Short Fuse 2010.
