3. Broken Off. 1971. 1:30 minutes.
4. Beached. 1970. 2:30 minutes. 5. Green As Well As Blue As Well As Red. 1975-1976. 18 minutes. Two performers enact simple actions while multiple soundtracks play: a dialogue between Lawrence Weiner and a partner/interrogator; a reading of the artist's works from the red book visible on the table; and a field recording of "Freiheit" from the Lincoln International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War. 6. For Example Decorated. 1977. 23 minutes. Three performers engage in an artworld talkshow. The layered multilingual soundtrack includes conversation, readings of the artist's texts, and singing. 7. There But For. 1980. 20 minutes. An improvised soap opera set within the defined boundaries of place (an apartment) and assigned roles of the players (nagging mother, oafish father, strange child, and their visitors). The music was also improvised live on the set as the actions unfolded. The artist makes a cameo appearance to prompt one of the players. 8. Niets Aan Verloren (Nothing To Lose). 1984. 22 minutes. This tape, in Dutch and English, is footage from a live performance in Holland. In it the players were continually enacting their tasks, although the roving focus of the camera lens here controls the viewer's perspective. The phrase in English occasionally repeated by the washerwoman is "Good manners spoil good food." 9. Quelques Choses. . . Lawrence Weiner, (interview). 1992. 24:30 minutes. An interview with the artist conducted by German curator Dieter Schwarz, made during Weiner's installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bordeaux, France.
