While embodying all the fundamental stages of Marina Abramovic's life and work, "The Biography of Biographies" reveals, through numerous beautiful reproductions, an artist who has deeply affected the art of our time and who possesses an extraordinary ability to revisit and reinterpret her own story through the use of performance as a form of visual art. This new "staging" of "The Biography"--called "The Biography Remix"--is carried out in collaboration with Michael Laub, a theater director who has maintained a close involvement with Abramovicï's work and shares with her a deep personal trust. The performance is not theater; it's not dance; it's not even video. Abramovic and Laub have developed a new and sometimes indefinable relationship between visual art, performance and theater--a uniquely direct relationship that builds work of great simplicity and beauty that has the power to move, surprise and entertain.
