At a three-day retreat in upstate New York, Marina instructed Lady Gaga in the Abramovic Method--a series of exercises designed to heighten participants' awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment.
Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI) will be the first space dedicated to practicing the Abramovic Method, which prepares participants to both perform and observe long durational work.

This video is dedicated to all of those who have encountered social injustice. It was inspired in part by the Serbian anti-gay riots on Oct 10th, 2010 and the numerous LGBTQ youth in the US, who took their own lives after experiencing harassment.
