What is the most famous auto-destructive work of art?

The most famous auto-destructive work of art was probably Swiss sculptor Jean Tinguely’s Homage to New York, which blew itself up at the Museum of Modern Art in 1960.

The work was meant to satirize modern technological civilization.

Constructed of an old piano and other junk, the piece failed to operate as planned and caused a fire, witnessed by a distinguished audience.
