Artist Marina Abramovic and Lady Gaga Make Nude Video for Kickstarter Campaign…

Performance artist Marina Abramovic is famous within the avant-garde community for her ways of displaying her nude body for the sake of, well, art.

Her newest venture is a Kickstarter project to fund the Marina Abramovic Institute, which is to be “an experimental space to conduct research and host workshops, public lectures, and residencies, and will serve as a venue through which the public may experience and interact with works of long durational performance.”

In full support of this effort, Lady Gaga stars in a performance art video in classic weird get-up and, for the most part, in the nude. Gaga seems to be warming up to promote her new album ARTPOP, which is to be released on November 11.

    Maybe LadyXerox thinks she’ll sell more first week albums with boobs. Then instead of using .99 cent discounted album sales to inflate her first week numbers??

    2:19 of my life wasted…

    I think she might be talented making a horror movie. Somehow this made me feel at least a bit uneasy.

    Maybe she’s just an artist expressing herself through art? Didn’t know this became Digital Art Critic Forum..

      My comment right here is performance art.

      So I can call myself an artist now, right? RESPECT ME!!

        I kind of like it and I think it could be expanded upon. In fact I wish I could make some kind of collaboration with her. I believe my powerful voice would be quite suitable for the purpose.

    So as I understand it from watching this video, this Abramovic Method involves standing, sitting, lying down, all while staring off into space.

    Not exactly the height of performance art, IMO.

    Gaga can personally fund her project off one concert, if she supports her why are they hustling every day people for the money.

    When I see the word “Kickstarter” I immediately hear the phrase “money laundering” in my head.
