Read full description of the books:
Marina Abramovic has been making groundbreaking art for 50 years, and now turns her gaze inward, to reveal her past with utter candor in a narrative guaranteed to shock and delight.
After withstanding a difficult childhood, she met Ulay, a performance artist and the love of her life, with whom she collaborated for 12 years until they ended their partnership dramatically atop the Great Wall of China.
Marina has performed punishing art to illustrate the courage we can find within; she's been cut, burned, and had a gun held to her head as the ultimate test between artist and viewer. Her 2010 MoMA retrospective, The Artist Is Present, drew 850,000 visitors to sit across from her, nonverbally connecting, and she's enraptured a new generation of luminaries who've sought her as a collaborator, among them Lady Gaga, Matthew Barney, James Franco, and Jay-Z.
Told with a charismatic voice, WALK THROUGH WALLS will be the one piece of Marina's art that anyone can take home.

Read information about the authorSince the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramovic has pioneered performance as a visual art form, creating some of the most important early works. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring her physical and mental limits in works that ritualize the simple actions of everyday life, she has withstood pain, exhaustion and danger in her quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. From 1975–88, Abramovic and the German artist Ulay performed together, dealing with relations of duality. Abramovic returned to solo performances in 1989.
She has presented her work at major institutions in the US and Europe, including the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven,1985; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, 1990; Neue National Galerie, Berlin, 1993, and the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, 1995. She has also participated in many large-scale international exhibitions including the Venice Biennale (1976 and 1997) and Documenta VI, VII and IX, Kassel (1977, 1982 and 1992). Recent performances include "The House With The Ocean View" at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York in 2002, and the Performance "7 Easy Pieces" at Guggenheim Museum, New York in 2005. In 2010, Abramovic had her first major U.S. retrospective and simultaneously performed for over 700 hours in “The Artist is Present” at Museum of Modern Art, New York. Using herself and the public as medium, Abramovic performed for three months at the Serpentine Gallery in London, 2014; the piece was titled after the duration of the work, “512 Hours”.
She was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale for the video installation and performance “Balkan Baroque.” In 2008 she was decorated with the Austrian Commander Cross for her contribution to Art History. In 2013, the French Minister of Culture accepted her as an Officer to the Order of Arts and Letters. In addition to these and other awards, Abramovic also holds multiple honorary doctorates from institutions around the world.
Abramovic founded the Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI), a platform for immaterial and long durational work to create new possibilities for collaboration among thinkers of all fields. The institute inhabited its most complete form to date in 2016 in collaboration with NEON in “As One”, Benaki Museum, Athens.
