Tate online presents latest netart Tate Online together with BT

Press Release 19 June 2002

Tate online presents latest netart Tate Online together with BT

Following the success of its netart commissions in 2000, Tate will
launch new works by artists Heath Bunting and Susan Collins on 1 July.
Tate's website, www.tate.org.uk, now registers over 1.5 million unique
users a year. As well as providing information on the four Tate
galleries and the Tate Collection, Tate Online, sponsored by BT,
continues to develop a distinct and identifiable programme, including
exhibitions of work created specifically for this medium.

Heath Bunting will develop a new work in a series that is currently
underway at www.irational.org/borderXing/. In this series, he carries
out border crossings in Europe, locating specific national boundaries
and undertaking walks that traverse them without interruption from
customs, immigration, or border police. The walks are documented with
notes and photographs. Bunting's walks recall the work of Hamish Fulton
and Richard Long and can be seen as contributing to the tradition in
conceptual art that takes as its subject themes of landscape and space.
Crucially though, these walks question political, economical and
juridical aspect of travel. The work will continue to develop throughout
the year.

Susan Collins has initiated a development programme for a Tate in Space.
At this stage of the programme, the Tate in Space website is the key
route through which members of the public can follow developments,
witness the architectural process, and follow the notional Tate
Satellite orbiting earth every 92.56 minutes. The site explores ways in
which a Tate in Space might extend visitor experience and engage new
audiences. Tate in Space online will act as an arena for debate and
reflection on the nature of art in space, raising questions about
cultural and institutional ambition and the very human desires to
observe and communicate.

Alongside these new works Tate has commissioned supporting texts.
Florian Schneider will discuss the work of Heath Bunting and Paul
Bonaventura will examine Susan Collins's project. Josie Berry will
provide a contextual overview for the works. These texts will be
available on the Tate site on 1 July 2002.

As a twenty-first century network, the Tate galleries and Tate Online
engage with the art of the past but also intervene in the debates and
practices of the present, through Tate's collection and displays, the
public events programmes and the exhibitions and commissions. The
website, powered by BT Openworld, has grown to be among the most
successful museum sites in the world, with visitors from more than 140
countries in 2001. Since BT and BT Openworld became Tate Online's
partners, visitor figures have almost doubled, with May 2002 registering
197,00 unique visitors, the highest figure to date.

Title: New Screen Media Publication
New Publication:

Martin Rieser, Andrea Zapp, editors:
New Screen Media: Cinema/Art/Narrative

The British Film Institute (BFI), London/Center for Art and Media (ZKM)
Karlsruhe, 2002

This publication juxtaposes the work of leading cultural theorists and
philosophers of new media, against creative artists' attempts to accommodate
to these vehicles of content. The book shows how classical narrative in many
areas has been giving way to a new, more fragmentary culture of drama. It
re-purposes the use of critical tools for discussing the inner design and
immersive effects of the new media forms and its social, political and
cultural contexts. Alongside a discussion of how these new stories relate to
issues of identity and the body, restructured temporal and spatial models
and interfaces, the book explores differing creative platforms such as the
Internet, Media Installation, Interactive Broadcast, CD-ROM and Expanded
Cinema. The artists, themselves exploring innovative solutions, critically
examine their own practice, with a special focus on fiction-based forms of

The advent of new media presents a serious challenge to our understanding of
visual representation, of narrative and indeed the whole art of the moving
image. New narrative forms in hypertext, multimedia, computer games,
interactive broadcast and screen media are constantly redefining the
relationship between the creators of content and their audiences, who
increasingly are becoming the co-producers of meaning.

The volume is presented with an accompanying DVD-ROM, featuring extracts
from some of the groundbreaking works discussed by leading media theorists
from Europe and the USA, including: Annika Blunck, Alex Butterworth, Sean
Cubitt, Soke Dinkla, Jon Dovey, Timothy Druckrey, Malcolm Le Grice, Lev
Manovich, Peter Weibel, Paul Willemen and John Wyver.


Made in conjunction with the ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe,
Germany, this unique addition to the book provides a rich sampler of
interactive work and videos by which to explore the experimental territory,
where the cinematic and digital arts are converging in new forms of
Such work has usually been shown in international gallery and conference
venues, which have been inaccessible to a general audience. This compilation
is carefully cross-referenced with the book to open a comprehensive overview
to a wider public. The cross-platform DVD-ROM provides up to 4 Gigabytes of
detailed illustration and analysis of the work of artists and interactive
filmmakers from around the world, who are at the cutting-edge in creating
and critiquing these new hybrid forms of interactive narrative.
Practitioners such as: Zoe Beloff, Michael Buckley, Luc Courchesne, Toni
Dove, Ken Feingold, Chris Hales, Graham Harwood, George Legrady, Merel
Mirage, Martin Rieser, Jill Scott, Bill Seaman, Jeffrey Shaw, Eku Wand,
Grahame Weinbren and Andrea Zapp are featured. A representative selection of
Installation forms, CD-ROM, Web and Broadcast are examined in depth.
