POP-CULTURE ICON: Marina is an art-world and pop-culture icon who has everyone from Jay Z to George Lucas clamoring to collaborate. Her MoMA retrospective brought in $14M in ticket sales, and her electrifying reunion with Ulay after 22 years apart has garnered 27M YouTube views.
POWERFUL MESSAGE: In addition to her dynamic storytelling, Marina’s goal is to impart a powerful message, using her personal experiences to help others learn to push through pain and emerge stronger than ever.
BESTSELLING COLLABORATOR: In the tradition of J. R. Moehringer’s collaboration with Andre Agassi on Open and George Plimpton’s channeling of Diana Vreeland in D.V., accomplished writer James Kaplan, bestselling author of Frank and Sinatra, has partnered with Marina to bring her voice to the page in the liveliest manner imaginable.
“Candidly and vividly sharing her personal struggles as well as her artistic and spiritual discoveries, Abramović presents a uniquely intense and affecting art memoir.”—Booklist
“Enchanting and emotionally raw, Walk Through Walls is an honest, gripping, and profound look into the heart and brilliant mind of one of the quintessential artists of the postmodern era.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“In her new memoir [Marina Abramović] exposes herself as provocatively and fearlessly in language as she has done for many years in her largely nonverbal performance art. Her page-turner of a narrative [is] at times shocking…genuinely moving, and always coruscatingly honest.” —Elle
“The author turns blank pages into a museum of the self, cutting herself open for the sake of the narrative. But in Abramović’s case, the performance feels even more extreme. She has actually bled for her life story….This Marina is the most charming one, the voice that makes Walk Through Walls propulsively readable.”—New Republic
“Marina’s role as an artist, she believes, with a hubris that can sound naïve and a humility that disarms any impulse to resent it, is to lead her spectators through an anxious passage to a place of release from whatever has confined them.”—Judith Thurman, The New Yorker
