Film: The Artist Is Present

Every Saturday and Sunday you can see the film ”Marina Abramović The Artist is Present” in the Cinema on floor 2. You are welcome to see a mesmerizing portrait of the pioneering and controversial performance artist.

”Marina Abramović 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?”
