The definitive monograph on an artist who pioneered the use of the body in art.
Survey by Kristine Stiles, Interview by Klaus Biesenbach, Focus by Chrissie Iles, Artist’s Choice by Alexandra David-Néel, Writings by Marina Abramovic.
Marina Abramovic (b.1946) is a pivotal figure whose performance-based works have revolutionized visual art and continue to be embraced by the latest generation of artists, critics and art historians.
Her iconic endurance works have featured prominently in virtually every comprehensive survey of performance art.
With a career that spans more than thirty years, Abramovic continues to produce groundbreaking new work, including the acclaimed seven-day performance Seven Easy Pieces at the Guggenheim in 2005.
As the first book in more than a decade to look at her work in its entirety, this monograph will offer a fresh take on an artist whose work is key to understanding the latest developments in contemporary art.
