What Makes Marina Abramovic’s Art So Extreme?

Marina Abramovic is a pioneer of performance art with a substantial reputation and an outlook on life that is, well, different. One reviewer of her “misconceived” memoir notes the need to tolerate “a certain amount of pomposity”. A colourful example of how her book can be viewed in the absence of such tolerance is here. A (serious) interview with the artist can be found, of all places, in Harvard Business Review.
