Go Between. 1972. 20 minute slide dissolve sequence, black & white, silent.

 Kristin, Erik, Phyllis and Dennis Oppenheim 

"With arms limp and controllable, Phyllis and I become targets for Kristin’s and Erik’s hostility.  Erik’ s blows to Kristin are registered on me, as Kristin’s are thrown at Phyllis (my wife).  By acting as go-betweens for their agression, we experience them directly, as if we were inside their bodies."
