Cut Piece

Albert Maysles, David Maysles, 1966, 8 min

Film Synopsis

Filmed at New York’s Carnegie Hall, CUT PIECE documents
one of Yoko Ono’s most powerful conceptual pieces.
Performed by the artist herself, Ono sits motionless on
the stage after inviting the audience to come up and cut
away her clothing in a denouement of the reciprocity
between victim and assailant.
