I really do wonder what the Tate Modern means when they say that their "live performance room" is "the only place you can see art made for you to view at home". Quite aside from the myriad artworks available online for people to experience - live or otherwise - have they forgotten about television, radio, and other media, digital and analogue, that has made the viewing of art possible not only at home but in all kinds of private and domestic spaces for - well, a very long time?
As a theatre artist whose practice has explored the use of the internet as a site for live performance for over a decade, I was naturally interested when I saw the Tate Modern announce their "Live Performance Room" series.
