Radical self-dramatisation – The performance icon Marina Abramović

The body became her stage. Whether she was carving a star into her belly or working her back with a whip, the Serbian performance artist is celebrated almost like a Hollywood star for her extreme explorations of body and soul. In New York’s MoMa, 700,000 people queued up to be able to look the artist in the eye. For the first time, Kunsthalle Tübingen is exploring the spiritual aspects of Marina Abramović’s work. An artist who now also markets her concentration and meditation exercises as the Abramović Method.

Discussing: Dr. Nicole Fritz, director of the Tübingen Kunsthalle; Prof. Dr. Hans Dieter Huber, artist, filmmaker, art historian, Berlin; Catrin Lorch, cultural journalist “Süddeutsche Zeitung”. 

Broadcast date: Thursday, 22.07.21, 5.05 p.m. to 5.50 p.m and later as a pod cast (in German language)
