It contains over 120 artworks, including paintings, drawings, objects, photographs, sound works, video, films, scenography and archival materials.
Marina Abramović (Belgrade, 1946) is one of the greatest performance artists and a remarkable figure in the contemporary art world. She is the only representative of the 1970s generation of radical performers who is still active in the field of performance art. Throughout her career she pushed her physical and mental boundaries exploring the themes of emotional and spiritual transfiguration, creating some of the most mesmerizing performance acts to date.
