Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Walk Through Walls, written and read by Marina Abramovic. This memoir spans Marina Abramovic's five-decade career and tells a life story that is almost as exhilarating and extraordinary as her groundbreaking performance art.
Taking us from her early life in communist ex-Yugoslavia to her time as an a young art student in Belgrade in the 1970s, where she first made her mark with a series of pieces that used the body as a canvas, the audiobook also describes her relationship with the West German performance artist named Ulay who was her lover and sole collaborator for 12 years. Abramovic has collaborated with stars from Lady Gaga to Jay-Z, James Franco and Willem Dafoe and is best known for her recent pieces 'The Artist Is Present' and '512 Hours'.
This audiobook is a fascinating insight into the life of one of the most important artists working today and the woman who has been described as 'the grandmother of performance art'.

This is a woman's story of her life and thoughts and work and I was afraid it would be too heavy- her voice at first feels comically deadpan Slavic- but I utterly fell in love with it and learnt do much about a type of art I had pretty much ignored, through ignorance.
Marina is an amazing info person with so much life and wonderful tales to tell, I really recommend this book, it will open your mind and heart.
