Marina Abramović: In Residence (2015) was a participatory public art project that relied on “facilitators” trained in the Abramović Method. As in other later works of Abramović’s performance practice, the artist’s presence is implied in the bodies of facilitators and participants. Situating In Residence in a longer history of institutional performance takes into account Abramović’s self-positioning as the charismatic undead.
