It looks like Marina Abramovic is the latest creative to turn to Kickstarter to fund a project or idea. What she wants to accomplish is quite ambitious as the New York-based Serbian performance artist hopes to create an institute that will serve as her legacy and homage to time-based and immaterial art – the epnonymously named Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI). Of course, with the estimated $20 million needed to realize her dream, the $600,000 goal for this Kickstarter will only go toward the first phase of MAI’s development – the design process.
If you are interested, check out the video below and head over here to contribute. As you will see, there are many prizes offered including different ones related to her recent famed performance for The Artist is Present at the MoMA where participants were encouraged to sit silently across from the artist for a duration of their choosing.
