WALK THROUGH WALLS: A MEMOIR. Marina Abramovic. Crown Archetype, Crown Publishers, Penguin Random House LLC, New York, 2016. 384 pp. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781101905043 In English.
Publisher's description: In 2010, more than 750,000 people stood in line at Marina Abramovic's MoMA retrospective for the chance to sit across from her and communicate with her nonverbally in an unprecedented durational performance that lasted more than 700 hours. This celebration of nearly fifty years of groundbreaking performance art demonstrated once again that Marina Abramovic is truly a force of nature. The child of Communist war-hero parents under Tito's regime in postwar Yugoslavia, she was raised with a relentless work ethic. Even as she was beginning to build an international artistic career, Marina lived at home under her mother's abusive control, strictly obeying a 10 p.m. curfew. But nothing could quell her insatiable curiosity, her desire to connect with people, or her distinctly Balkan sense of humor -- all of which informs her art and her life. The beating heart of Walk Through Walls is an operatic love story -- a twelve-year collaboration with fellow performance artist Ulay, much of which was spent penniless in a van traveling across Europe -- a relationship that began to unravel and came to a dramatic end atop the Great Wall of China.
