About

For Tate Britain, Keiller has extended this idea to create an exhibition, The Robinson Institute, in which images of landmarks and locations in the English landscape are employed to illustrate the development of capitalism. The premise for The Robinson Institute is that a team of researchers has revisited Robinson’s last known journey, and has presented his findings and film footage as an exhibition, featuring works by artists, writers, historians, geographers, cartographers and geologists; and a variety of other objects.
