- Entrance to Exit
1966 (6:30 min., sound, b&w.)
Entry by Maciunas: "A smooth linear transition from white, through greys to black, produced in developing tank. The 'door sign' ENTRANCE fades in, white letters on the black background, stays for a few seconds, then slowly fades into white. Five-minute fade into black and the title EXIT, which stays for a few seconds then fades into white. Fluxfilm no. 10 from 37 Short Fluxus Films."
- Art by Telephone
LP album (A-1983-21, 44:00 min.), which was also the catalogue for an exhibition of the same name at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. The MCA asked over 30 artists, including artists as Siah Armajani, Richard Artschwager, John Baldessari and Mel Bochner, to telephone in to the museum, or to answer the museum's call, and then to instruct museum staff about what their contribution to the show would be. The museum then produced the pieces and displayed them. A 'record catalogue' was produced, replete with recordings of the telephone engagements between artists and museum. As the founder of Brecht & MacDiarmid, Research Associates, Brecht was exploring the possibilities of floating land masses across the surface of the earth to new locations. Museum visitors could react to his proposals by leaving a message on an answering machine. See also UbuWeb.
