Marina Abramović: An Art Made of Trust, Vulnerability and Connection

Redefining Art: Where Fear Meets Inspiration

15:51 minutes
TED, curated by Analía Sirabonian.


Marina Abramović’s art pushes the boundary between audience and artist in pursuit of heightened consciousness and personal change. “Nothing happens if you always do things the same way,” she says. “My method is to do things I’m afraid of, the things I don’t know, to go to territory that nobody’s ever been.”.
