Marina Abramovic: Dream Book
Performance artist Marina Abramović has imagined a house in which dreams – an essential aspect of human consciousness neglected in modern culture – can be stimulated, recorded and appreciated. In the ‘Dream Book’, instructions are given on how to use the so-called “Dream House”, a place built of the necessity to dream again, and the rituals Abramović has conceived for its various spaces. Recorded in the book are 100 dreams selected from more than 1800 that were written down between July 2000 and November 2010, a period when the project and house were actualised in Japan, and the project is still continuing.
