Reperformance — June 5 till 16

The House with the Ocean View (2022) is one of the most daring durational performances where human endurance is put to the test. In this re-performance by Abramović a performer lives in the museum’s exhibition area for twelve consecutive days and nights following strict rules that include fasting, being silent and showering three times daily.

The performance takes place in the recreated installation of Marina Abramović’s original performance from 2002: a platform with three sparsely furnished spaces that serve as a bedroom, living room and bathroom, separated from visitors by ladders with knives for rungs. The audience is invited to silently connect with the performer.  


Day visit

The performance will take place from 5 through 16 June at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam as part of the large retrospective exhibition of Marina Abramović’s work. The performance can be visited during the museum’s opening hours.
