Summary
  • "Once upon a time two daring young artists - Marina Abramovic from Yugoslavia, and Uwe Laysiepen from West Germany - chanced to meet in Amsterdam, fall in love, and begin an extraordinary collaboration. Their guiding principles: "no fixed living-place, permanent movement, direct contact, local relation, self-selection, passing limitations, taking risks, mobile energy, no rehersal, no predicted end, no repetition." For a dozen years, and across five continents, they produced a body of work that is regarded as being among the most conceptually powerful and emotionally challenging in all of Performance Art
  • Seven years after they began their journey they met Thomas McEvilley, an art critic on assignment, and the three of them became fast friends. When love came to an end five years later, Marina Abramovic and Ulay created a three-month-long performance of walking the Great Wall of China from opposite ends as the culmination of their life and work together. Thomas McEvilley was there with them, and wrote the story of that work; and for the following twenty-two years - while Marina Abramovic has continued her performance career, and Ulay has returned to his roots as a conceptual photographer - Tom has continued to write about them, exploring the progress of meanings that constitute the collective work, together and apart, of two extraordinary artists who remain his very good friends."--BOOK JACKET
