Things Change is a short documentary that addresses the challenges of preserving time-based media art in the context of a museum



Time-based media artworks may have as their medium film, slides, video, audio, performance or software, they can be analogue or digital and they have the dimension of time.

In line with Tate’s mission to promote the public understanding and engagement of modern and contemporary art, the Time-based Media Conservation team at Tate cares for and preserves the artworks that are part of the collection, and prepares them for display.
