Abramović Method

Henie Onstad Kunstsenter welcomes the audience to a special event at Høvikodden from February 27 to March 4, 2018 from 11am to 5pm.

For this occation, Marina Abramović presents a new work for the Norwegian audience in Sal Haaken at the art centre and will be a community work made by Abramović Method.

What is The Method?
Abramovic Method is a large scale, public participatory event joining people in a communal experience to connect with oneself and with each other. Inside this quiet, non-discriminatory and non-hierarchical space, the public is invited to participate in a number of exercises and to observe others as they participate. Connecting people in this basic way and creating a space of mutual witnessing, we encourage the kind of collective vulnerability that humans being need in order to better coexist.

What will happen?
The entire Sal Haaken at Henie Onstad will be staged for the work. Here, the art center, in collaboration with Marina Abramović herself and her Studio, has engaged and trained 25 facilitators who will guide the audience in the room. The work will allow up to 150 people to participate at the same time.
