http://www.moma.org/explore/multimedia/audios/190/1972 Marina Abramovic was born November 30, 1946 in Belgrade, Serbia. Her parents were a commander and major in the army. Her father left in 1964. Her mother look over her life with tyrannical power for the next few years. She went to the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade from 1965-70. Postgrad she went to The Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Croatia. After that, she taught at Novi Saud while
doing her performances. She was married in 1971-1976 and afterward moved to Amsterdam. "mother took complete military-style control of me and my brother. I was not allowed to leave the house after 10 o'clock at night till I was 29 years old. ... [A]ll the performances in Yugoslavia I did before 10 o'clock in the evening because I had to be home then. It's completely insane, but all of my cutting myself, whipping myself, burning myself, almost losing my life in the firestar, everything was done before 10 in the evening." All audio clips are from MoMA and referring to the original performances and Abramovic's greatest work yet "The Artist Is Present". Marina Abramovic is one of the most amazing
women in the world to me. She is my inspiration
for everything I do. Mainly, because I feel she is not
just brave but strong in every way possible. Her work
evokes pure emotion in me. It does not matter that her work is performance rather than a painting because the lasting effect of her work is the same as looking at an Andres Serrano photograph. Marina Abramovic is the pioneer of her style of art and will always be the Queen of it. since the 1970's,
Marina Abramovic has NOT
quit coming up with new performances.
In 2007, She did "The Artist Is Present", where
she took her own students and had them reenact her
older performances for over 700 hours in the MoMA. This prompted a documentary also titled "The Artist Is Present".
