«This performance came from my desire to see if it is possible to use daily discipline, rules and restriction to purify myself.»Marina Abramović in: The Biography of Biographies, 2004

For the first time and exclusively, the legendary Performance House with the Ocean View is now being performed again by Lyn Bentschik in Bonn.
In 2002, Marina Abramović moved to the Sean Kelly Gallery, New York, in three floating interconnected spaces. For a period of 12 days, she was seen in her daily routine, which she performed in silence and fasting, from sleeping and showering to using the toilet. The only thing that separated the artist from the visitors were three ladders, the rungs of which consisted of carving knives with upwardly pointing blades.
As in the original, the performer will spend 12 days and 12 nights in the designated rooms in the Marina Abramović exhibition in Bonn.

Intendant Rein Wolfs, curator Susanne Kleine and/or program curator Miriam Barhoum will answer questions about performance art directly in the exhibition.
