Product Description

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovi has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her limits and at times risking her life in the process she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us.

Marina Abramovi the Artist is Present follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major new retrospective of her work, taking place at The Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world s premier museums is the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more: it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: "But why is this art?"

Awards and Accreditations:

Berlin International Film Festival, Panorama Audience Award 2012

I originally saw this on BBC4 and it completely changed my life. This woman is a complete artist and anyone with a mild interest in the arts will be immersed in this.

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping 5 Jan 2013
By scott
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wasn't really aware of her work at the time that this exhibition/performance was happening in New York, I had heard about it but not looked into it. So I wasn't sure that I'd enjoy this, but it was completely gripping, and made a good attempt to explain her previous work to give us context. Very well done documentary.

Great documentary!
Insightful and full of new material for those of you who know the artists.
Marina is very articulate, and with the help of the director the video is a masterpiece!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING, INSPIRATIONAL 31 Oct 2013
By Nadine
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As an artist that is currently beginning in performance art, Marina Abramovic (the grandmother of performance art) has been of huge impact on me. Then I watched this DVD, and wow, what a moving, motivational, inspirational artist. This lady is full of power and emotion within her work.
The Artist is Present, was a performance piece that Marina performed at MOMA, New York, with 5 of her historical art works being performed and a new piece by Marina where the artist is literally present, where she engages with her public on a one to one just connecting through pure eye contact.
I'd recommend this to anyone, particularly students with an interest in performance art! Very happy with my purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 23 May 2013
By Becca
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent DVD, really interesting piece, I've watched a few times and enjoyed it as well as lending it out to friends who've also enjoyed. Case is a bit whimsy - made from cardboard - but the actual film is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ever 11 Jan 2013
By Julie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this film on Australian tv and straight after viewing it I ordered it from Amazon. When it arrived I arranged for a group of my artist friends to watch it at my house. So we had an EVENT. We all found it riveting; both the artist, Marina, and also the film itself which was so sensitively made. Later I showed it to another group. After each showing lively discussion took place. And we have all found that we keep thinking about aspects of the film. Nothing is better than a film or book which keeps one thinking long after one has opened or viewed it. I would recommend this film to any thinker and all artists.
I had never heard to Marina Abramovic before I happened across the film on tv. Now I'm reading one of her biographies and I consider myself a FAN. Julie Podstolski.
