DFF 2013: Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present

Film, Documentaries

For those interested in the intricacies of art, this film offers a glimpse into performance artist Abramovic’s world as she strives to prove the validity of her art. ‘The point of this film is that if you believe in what you do and you stick at it for a long enough time, people will respect what you do,’ explains Felix Ng, 31, the director and curator of A Design Film Festival (DFF). ‘Her entire career, people asked her, why is whipping yourself or standing naked “art”? But after 30 years, people eventually got it.’
