ART21 is an award-winning series of 24 programmes in which 100 contemporary artists talk about their creations, the way they work and their individual view of art. How do artists mime the past to explore the present? Why do some historical events shape the way we think today, and why have some been forgotten? In what ways do artists use their own histories to examine the human condition? In this episode, the artists Marina Abramović, Glenn Ligon and Mary Reid Kelley play with historical events, explore and expose commonly held assumptions about historic 'truth'. Marina Abramović appears in the new video piece created in collaboration with video artist Charles Atlas
