Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square

Book your place

The joint talk offers insights into collections of performance art at Tate and the performance of historic collections by contemporary artists at natural history museums. We discuss the processes of archiving, conservation and activation of works. We will consider the durability of materials, their decay and continuing issues of conservation. We consider different archival and collecting structures as well as the interactions of time-based media and photography within and beyond the museum.
