One man, a tape recorder and a line-up of incredible artists from all over the world



Audio Arts was an innovative sound magazine published on cassettes, established by William Furlong in 1973. Tate recently acquired the magazine’s collection of master tapes, including unique recordings of artists, as well as of writers and thinkers – Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik, James Joyce and Noam Chomsky amongst them.
