This publication reflects the richness in the exhibition "Comun Comunal: Marina Abramovic + MAI" (Sesc Pompeia - São Paulo, 2015), which exhibited works from more than forty years by acclaimed Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic. With installations and sculptures, films and a series of live events, the exhibition stimulated encounters between visitors and performers, activating an interaction inherent in the artist's propositions. Includes texts by art historian Sophie O'Brien, philosopher Peter Pál Pelbart and anthropologist Regina Polo Müller who study the open and collaborative work between artist and spectator, the concepts of presence and mystery, transcendence, transformation and Humor in the work of the Serbian artist. MAI (Marina Abramovic Institute) is home to the Abramovic Method, a series of exercises designed by Abramovic over the course of 40 years to explore boundaries of body and mind.
