Iconic Serbian performance artist Marina Abramović has turned to Kickstarter to get her vision of the Marina Abramović Institute built and ready for opening. Known for her controversial and oftentimes dangerous performance pieces (in one she passively allowed an audience to inflict whatever pleasures or pain they chose), Abramović is completely dedicated to the preservation and presentation of long durational work. She hopes this new institute (MAI) will provide an open place to host a number of various workshops, lectures, and research, ultimately enabling society to open a dialogue about what art is and how it works alongside science, technology, and spirituality.

With 40 years of work behind her, Abramović's most recent piece was in 2010, titled The Artist Is Present, and was held at the Museum of Modern Art. For three months she sat across from complete strangers, experimenting with gaze and connection. More than 1,500 people came to stare into her eyes, with many having an emotional reaction (including Abramović herself). She attributes this experience to helping her realize society's need to connect with one another in person and the lack of spaces dedicated to such an alliance, eventually giving thought to an institute dedicated to long durational works (a performance lasting at least six hours) that can facilitate connection.

If you're wondering what exactly MAI will focus on, it will be everything from art and dance to opera and film, as well as anything else that arises in the future. The institute "will provide an educational space to host workshops, lectures, residencies, and research." Photo Courtesy of Kickstarter

Funding for the first stage has been open since July 26 and won't close until August 25, with $185,481 of the $600K goal raised at the time of this article. The project will actually need $20M to complete renovations on the building she bought at 620 Columbia Street in Hudson, NY for $950,000 specifically for the institution. Before you think Abramović is looking for others to pay for her vision, she "funded the MAI office for six months and commissioned the architectural concept" on her own, already putting in $1.5M towards phase zero of the school.

In pure Abramović fashion, I hope you're not expecting average rewards for your donations. While you can contribute as little as $5, you should at least give $25 — which will allow you to participate in her Water Drinking, Slow Motion Walk or Eye Gazing exercise/live events. Each of these three exercises are meant to make you more aware of yourself and the world around you. Abramović, yourself, and other backers will perform your chosen exercise simultaneously via live stream, giving you the chance to document the experience however you want and the opportunity to have it included in the MAI digital archives.

Giving $250 will pre-register you for a ride in the compatibility racer installation, a cart controlled by the brainwaves of the two drivers, which Abramović has been developing alongside neuroscientists. If you want a tour of the MAI building in New York City, alongside other perks, consider contributing $500. True fans of the artist will be interested in the $1,000 and up packages, which include participating in the eye gaze with Abramović directly via webcam, a workshop of your project in any medium with the artist herself, and even attending an event with her. However, the true performance art aficionado may want nothing in return, which is where donating $10,000 comes in — Abramović will do nothing, you'll do nothing, and your contribution won't be acknowledged. If you're wondering who would take that deal, seven people already have. Photo Credit: Noah Blumenson-Cook | Kickstarter

For many, this Kickstarter marks a new introduction to the usually stoic and intense Abramović as she shows a side of herself that hasn't necessarily been seen by the public. In many videos supporting MAI she is seen laughing and making jokes, creating a magnetic pull towards her and the institute. Aside from a hilarious video in which she tries multiple times to tell a "How many lightbulbs..." joke, she also recently appeared in Jay Z's performance art music video for "Picasso Baby," bringing the art form to a much broader audience — though it's worth noting that band The National partook in some long durational work back in May when they performed their song "Sorrow" for six hours straight. Abramović also teamed up with Lady Gaga, recording the singer reading the sci-fi novel Solaris (which took eight hours), as well as collaborating on Gaga's upcoming record ARTPOP.Photo Courtesy of MoMA


  • Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis found napping during the day may be an early sign of Alzheimer's disease
  • Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease usually don't appear until after the age of 60
  • Alzheimer's disease affects more than 5.4 million Americans

Dozing off at work could be an early warning sign of Alzheimer's disease, new research warns.

People who dozed off or napped at inappropriate times, even if they got enough sleep, were more likely to have traces of the disease during their brain scans, according to the new study.

Alzheimer's disease, which is the sixth leading cause of death among adults in the US, is difficult to spot in the early stages because symptoms don't appear until later.

The study, published in JAMA Neurology, is the latest to link the sleep-wake cycle to the neurodegenerative disease and could help doctors identify people at-risk of developing the disease years in advance.

New research suggests people who nap during the day are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease

'In this new study we found people with pre-clinical Alzheimer's disease had more fragmentation in their [sleep-wake] activity patterns - with more periods of inactivity or sleep during the day and more periods of activity at night,' said senior author Dr Yo-El Ju of Washington University.

Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, which includes inability to create new memories and forgetfulness, usually do not appear until after the age of 60, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

One of the hallmarks of the disease is the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaques between nerve cells in the brain. Clumps of this toxic brain protein destroys memory and causing confusion.

For the study, researchers at Washington University in St Louis analyzed data from 189 cognitively normal adults with an average age of 66. Their sleep cycles were tracked for one to two weeks using devices similar to exercise trackers.
