On 25 Jan 2023, Bangkok Art Biennale held a Lecture “History of Long Durational Work and MAI” by an eminent conceptual and performance artist Marina Abramović. Over the past 50 years, Abramovic has earned worldwide acclaim as a pioneer of performance art. She has consistently tested the limits of her physical and mental endurance in her work.
The lecture consisted of different visual materials talking about the art of performance and explained the relation of performance to other mediums, such as music, dance, opera, and theater.
Abramović focused on contemporary long durational work today, provided an introduction to the Abramovic Method and invited audience to experience part of her workshop to improve focus and concentration.
