Any close read of Marina Abramovic’s work should make this pretty obvious, but it’s official: she’s building a station from which to mobilize. Today the Sundance Channel and Marina Abramovic gives us a preview of future, the Marina Abramovic
cult institute base to develop the future. Here’s what we know so far:
- She will take your watch, your computer, and your cell phone.
- You will be given a lab coat and headphones.
- You will be given a thin frame of two-by-fours in which to stand.
- You will be given a small wooden table on which to sleep. This, and endurance standing.
- Part of your day will be spent inside a glass enclosure, through which the public will observe you.
- In regular intervals, you will be rolled to a mandatory Marina Abramovic performance and provided with one blanket.
- The acoustic is amazing. Uhhh. Uhhh.
Regrettably, we can’t embed the video, but you can watch here.
