When BMW meets Tate, state capitalism and private capitalism and the institutional delay
I'm feeling supersonic
Give me gin and tonic
You can have it all but how much do you want it?
You make me laugh
Give me your autograph
Can I ride with you in your BMW?
You can sail with me in my yellow submarine
You need to find out
'Cos no one's gonna tell you what I'm on about
You need to find a way for what you want to say
But before tomorrow

has anyone else had a look at this?
i'm a bit stunned that they are describing what sounds like
webcasting slightly augmented by social media as "an entirely new
mode of presentation" ... on their web site, they even claim it as "
the first artistic programme created purely for live web broadcast."
where have they been for the last 15+ years i wonder???

BMW Tate Live Performance Room:
Online at www.youtube.com/tate
on Thursday 26 April at 20:00 BST
BMW Tate Live Performance Room is a pioneering programme
of live performances created exclusively for online
broadcast, simultaneously reaching international audiences
across world time zones.
For the second performance in
the BMW Tate Live Performance Room, Argentinean born
artist Pablo Bronstein will premiere, Constantinople
Kaleidoscope, an entirely new work made especially
for the BMW Tate Live Performance Room. Involving a group
of dancers, Bronstein will create a baroque trompe l'oeil
stage set that exaggerates the perspective of the room
with mirrored columns. Bronstein uses architectural design
and drawing to engage with the grandiose and imperial past
of the built environment and this preoccupation with form
frequently extends into his live work.
Audiences, who will only be able to view the performances
on the internet, are invited to enter the online
Performance Room via www.youtube.com/tate
at 20.00 hrs in the UK and exactly the same moment across
time zones on the specified dates—16.00 hrs on the East
Coast of America, 21.00 hrs in mainline Europe and 23.00
hrs in Russia.
The global audience are encouraged to chat with other
viewers via social media channels and to put questions to
the artists or curator following it using Tate's social
using #BMWTateLiveQ and facebook.com/tategallery.
The BMW Tate Live Performance Room was inaugurated by
French choreographer and dancer Jérôme Bel with the work Shirtology at Tate
on 22 March. Artists Emily
Fletcher and Joan
Jonas will also present works for the BMW Tate Live
Performance Room in the coming months.
On Thursday 31 May, American
artist and writer, Emily Roysdon, explores the
intersection of choreography and political action through
a collaborative performance.
Harrell Fletcher's work often
takes the form of socially engaged and interdisciplinary
projects. On Thursday 28 June, for BMW Tate Live, he will
work with local amateur performers who ordinarily would
not be seen by the Performance Room's global audience.
The final BMW Tate Live Performance Room in
2012 is by legendary performance artist, Joan Jonas. Since
the 1960s, she has been a major figure at the forefront of
explorations in film, new media and performance,
transcending genres to develop an influential practice
rooted in space, movement, ritual and gesture.
This innovative format offers international audiences an
opportunity to experience performance works through an
entirely new mode of presentation. Each performance is
archived and available to view online after the live
BMW Tate Live is a four-year partnership between BMW
