In The Mind of Marina Abramovic

“In theatre, blood is ketchup; in performance, everything's real” - says Marina Abramovic. She is an icon, a superstar, a strange black hole in the universe. She is a superwoman with scars instead of tattoos, a grandmother of the performance… For her good art is only possible in life, not in artificial spaces as studios: “In the performance the knife is real, the blood is real, and the emotions are real.” Marina’s work is hardcore. She pushes her own body and mind to the incredible extremes and uses them as tools to deliver her message.
