Marina Abramovic Causes Controversy in Poland
And all because of a leaked email to Hillary Clinton.
Entertainment 29 Mar 2019

The performance art queen Marina Abramovic is having a retrospective, traveling the world. For its current stop at the Centre of Contemporary Art Znaki Czasu in Torun, Poland, far-right Catholics are protesting against the Serbian artist, who they believe worships the devil.
It all came about in 2016 when an email with Hillary Clinton was leaked, where Marina invited Hillary to a ‘spirit cooking’ with the artist.
That was taken out of context, though it was just a fundraising dinner. Over 100 Polish artists wrote an open letter protesting the show for more than one reason.
