A Memoir

by Marina Abramovic

Hardback Publication Date: 28/11/2016

  $49.99

The extraordinary memoir of the world's most successful performance artist.

Performance artist Marina Abramovic has spent her life walking through walls - barriers of pain, endurance, acceptability and, above all, art and life.

In this extraordinary memoir she tells her story from her severe, abusive childhood in post-war Yugoslavia to the daring and controversial acts of performance that have stunned audiences and won international acclaim.

Exploring how her extreme commitment to the moment is the secret to her art and success, Walk Through Walls reveals how she became one of the most important living artists in the world.

“ Rawly intimate and weirdly mesmeric. Could this be her bravest work of performance art to date? ” Observer

Marina Abramovic

Born in Belgrade just after the end of the Second World War, Marina Abramovic (born 1946) was raised in the Serbian Orthodox Church (her great uncle was a Patriarch and a canonized saint in the Church) and left Yugoslavia in 1976, having already established herself as a performance artist, living in Amsterdam and eventually New York, where she presently lives.

In 2010 she was the subject of an enormously popular retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
