Marina Abramović | Retrospective | Performance Art | Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

Marina Abramović has been a prominent figure in performance and body art since the 1970s and is considered one of the most important founders of this art form. An early proponent of using the human body in performance, she has consistently pushed herself to the limit emotionally and physically, exposing herself to exhaustion, pain and even the possibility of death.

Featuring over 60 works, including photographs, videos, sculptures, four iconic live performances (all making their debut in the Netherlands) and two participatory works, this survey covers her entire impressive oeuvre.
