    Full Description

    Over the past half century, Marina Abramović has earned worldwide acclaim as a pioneer of performance art. This handsome new book records the first UK exhibition to include works from her entire career. Re-performances of some of her best-known and most radical works appear alongside new works created especially for the exhibition. An augmented reality app for iOS and Android enables readers to watch films of Abramović’s original performances while reading the book.

    An essential purchase for all followers of Abramović’s extraordinary 50-year career, this important new publication brings expert voices into the debate that her ground-breaking work engenders. How far should an artist push herself in pursuit of her work? What role does the audience play in creating a performance? How can performance art outlive the moment in which it takes place?
