Key facts

Genre: Event with live subtitles


Hear artist Marina Abramović talk about her work in the context of the past, present and future of performance art.


Since the beginning of her career in Belgrade during the early 1970s, Marina Abramović has pioneered performance art, creating some of the form’s most important early works. Exploring her physical and mental limits, she has withstood pain, exhaustion and danger in her quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. 


In this talk, Abramović will explore her 50-year art career focusing on the body as material, her relationship to the public, as well as her vision for the future of long durational and immaterial art. This event will also be an exciting opportunity to learn more about the new work she will present in 2020 in her solo exhibition at the RA*.


The talk will be followed by a Q&A with the RA’s Artistic Director Tim Marlow.
