Marina Abramovic

The Cleaner

20 April to 12 August 2018

Radical, controversial and admired in equal measure, Marina Abramović is one of the most talked about international artists today. She is famous for her ground-breaking performances in which she explores personal experience and responsibility and continues to probe her own physical and psychological limits. She addresses fundamental existential questions – the passage of time, physical vulnerability, memory, pain, loss, endurance and trust – that provoke or touch the viewer with great immediacy.

«A powerful performance will transform everyone in the room.» Marina Abramović

The first major retrospective to be shown in Europe, the exhibition presents works from all periods of Abramović’s career – from the early years to the present. Films, photographs, paintings and objects, installations and select archival material shed light on the depth and conceptual reach of the Marina Abramović’s creative cosmos. A series of reperformances enhances the visitor experience.

Filme, Fotografie, Malerei, Zeichnungen, Skulpturen, Installationen sowie ausgesuchtes Archivmaterial zeigen die thematische und mediale Bandbreite der Künstlerin. Vor allem einige Re-Performances und partizipative Arbeiten bereichern das intensive Ausstellungserlebnis.
