The basic motive for production research of the performance Marina Abramović or How I Lost My Way to Antigone was the knot of ethics, which crosses the modern artistic and political practice. It is the sphere which Alain Badiou defined as the “passion for the real” through the issues of “I” and “we”, and the questions of singular and collective. After the postmodern times, the contemporariness is only a mask of a myth and the class struggle, therefore the project focuses on Antigone’s act and the performative ontology of the contemporary artist Marina Abramović.

After Brecht’s Me-Ti/The Book of Changes, Badiou’s The Century, Žižek’s Welcome to the Spiritual Kingdom of Animals, Marina Abramović or How I Lost My Way to Antigone is the fourth project in the cycle which is driven symbolically by Brecht’s idea of protecting wilderness: “…there is no crueller enemy of the wild elephant than the tame elephant.”
