  Work Details  
  Alternating between an English lesson, in which a French-speaking man and woman translate English phrases, and short samples of what Acconci calls the voice of America -- movie soundtracks, Creole singers, honky-tonk piano -- The American Gift investigates the problematics of translation and nationality.
