In her 2005 performance Seven Easy Pieces, Marina Abramović reenacted five seminal 1960s and 1970s performance works by her peers and one by herself, while introducing a new work (the seventh "easy piece"). The seven works were performed for seven hours each, over the course of seven consecutive days, and included pieces by Vito Acconci, Joseph Beuys, and Bruce Nauman. This documentary reflects on Abramovic's work and the possibilities of representing and preserving an ephemeral art form. Mangolte introduces the film and joins us for a postscreening Q&A.
