Performance artist Marina Abramovic has spent her life walking through walls - barriers of pain, endurance, acceptability and, above all, art and life. In this extraordinary memoir she tells her story from her severe, abusive childhood in post-war Yugoslavia to the daring and controversial acts of performance that have stunned audiences and won international acclaim.

Exploring how her extreme commitment to the moment is the secret to her art and success, Walk Through Walls reveals how she became one of the most important living artists in the world.

About the Author

Marina Abramovic is a Serbian performance artist based in New York. Her work explores the relationship between performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind. Active for over five decades, Abramovic has been described as the 'grandmother of performance art'.
Industry Reviews
Could this be her bravest work of performance art to date? . . . Rawly intimate and weirdly mesmeric. * Observer *

Enchanting and emotionally raw, Walk Through Walls is an honest, gripping, and profound look into the heart and brilliant mind of one of the quintessential artists of the postmodern era.

* Publishers Weekly, starred review *
In her new memoir, Walk Through Walls, [Marina Abramovic] exposes herself as provocatively and fearlessly in language as she has done for many years in her largely nonverbal performance art. Her page-turner of a narrative [is] at times shocking...genuinely moving, and always coruscatingly honest. * Elle *

Marina has lived like an unstoppable force of nature, with the kind of power that leaves me feeling breathless and disquieted-while at the same time profoundly impressed, awed, and inspired. As I turn the pages of her book, I hear her voice in my head, as if she were actually narrating the words. . . Her voice is soothing, calm, and centered. It belies the trauma, fear, and darkness coiled at the root of her impulse to express and expunge.

* Annie Lennox, Vanity Fair *
Candidly and vividly sharing her personal struggles as well as her artistic and spiritual discoveries, Abramovic presents a uniquely intense and affecting art memoir. * Booklist, starred review *
