Walk Through Walls: A Memoir
Walk Through Walls: A Memoir | Marina Abramovic
21 posts | 12 read | 21 to read
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."

I think this is a pretty good haul from the bookstore summer sale. I was surprised Abramovic had a memoir, really looking forward to reading it. Didn't know about Murad's book, too. It's always great to find new reads during book sales, but it's also sad because you know they're marked down because no one reads and buys them. 😔 I'm happy in general because I've been looking for all these, and now got them for 80% discount. 📚🌟

“...the process was more important than the result, just as the performance means more to me than the object. I saw the process of making it and then the process of its unmaking. There was no duration or stability to it. It was pure process.” —Marina Abramovic

"Als ich den frenetischen Applaus des Publikums hörte, wusste ich, dass es mir gelungen war, eine unvorhergesehene Einheit von Gegenwart und Vergangenheit herzustellen, mit zufälligen Abweichungen." (S. 84) #Kunst #Performence #Abramovic

S. 25 Die Kindheit von Abramovic liest sich wie eine Gruselgeschichte. Sie wurde von ihrer Mutter geschlagen und von anderen Kindern gehänselt. Trotzdem ist sie nicht gänzlich zerbrochen, sondern hat ihre Kindheit in Stärke verwandelt. #Abramovic #Autobiografie #Kindheit

Die Biografie von Marina Abramovic ist faszinierend. Sie erzählt von ihrer Kindheit im kommunistischen Jugoslawien und vom langwierigen Prozeß, sich von der strengen und prüden Mutter zu trennen. Man kommt der großen Künstlerin ganz nah. Sie erklärt ihre Performances und man versteht die Grenzen, die sie dabei überwinden musste. Sind ihre frühen Projekte von Schmerz und Gefahr geprägt, sind spätere Aktionen konzentriert und ruhig.

Hey Marina, I'm not really sure I'm picking up what you're putting down, but you're endlessly fascinating! I'm thoroughly enjoying Abramović's memoir despite my lack of familiarity with performance art

Marina Abramovic is a fascinating woman. Also maybe more than a little crazy. I'm not saying that because of any of her performance pieces, but more because she thinks she communicated telepathically with Aboriginal people in Australia and believes in all kinds of weird crystal stuff. if you think she's a dangerous satanist you should probably avoid the book but otherwise you might find the look into the beginnings of performance art interesting.

This memoir was everything I would expect from a talented and interesting artist like Abramovic. She tells the stories of her troubled childhood in the former Yugoslavia that clearly show how she was shaped to embrace the discipline and darkness required for her art. She describes many of her former performance pieces and her travels are envious. This memoir is not for the faint of heart, but I recommend giving it a try!

Owlizabeth Is this the woman who stares at people? 3y
Julz422 @Owlizabeth she's a performance artist! She has a thing at Moma where people could sit in front of her if that's what you mean 😂 3y

Still loving this book, but this woman...she's a true artist in the craziest sense of that word.

Hilariously, she was just talking about how she had a very short-lived job as a mail carrier. She decided to only deliver the mail which was hand-addressed. She threw away everything else, "especially the bills."
