Marina Abramovic The Artist is Present is in cinemas on 6th July, and to mark the occasion we have a newsletter competition for you to enter. We have a copy of the films poster, signed by director Matthew Akers, to give away. To win simply make sure you are signed up to the Dogwoof newsletter and then email us your details on email@example.com to enter the competition!
Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her limits – and at times risking her life in the process – she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ THE ARTIST IS PRESENT follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major new retrospective of her work, taking place at The Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world’s premier museums is the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more: it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: “But why is this art?”
Please note this competition is only open to residents of the UK and Ireland, and you must be subscribed to the newsletter in order to be entered. We will close the competition and contact the winner on 1st August.
