Marina Abramovic: Balkan Epic

from Amazon.com listing- "Marina Abramovic is a pioneer in the use of performance as an art form. The body has always been both her subject and medium. Exploring the physical and mental limits of her being, she has withstood pain, exhaustion, and danger in the quest for emotional and spiritual transformation. In her latest work, Balkan Erotic Epic, Abramovic creates new, surprising perspectives on archaic rituals that used erotic powers to influence fate and fortune. These powerful images talk to us about the disavowal of ancient practices, and about something buried deep in our consciousness."

The Balkan Epic- the interview, and the book.  The movie below.
