Marina Abramovic: 8 Lessons on Emptiness with a Happy End

Marina Abramovic's The Family III

Of most interest to me is the photography series titled The Family in which she "poses Laotian children — symbols of innocence — costumed as soldiers in various warlike scenarios, all against the backdrop of a region known for spirituality, but also conflict."
