Discussion List


Tate in Space launched an email Discussion List on September 1st 2002 to create a public forum that addressed the many issues emerging in relation to Tate in Space. Every 2 months until July 2003, a new focus and set of questions were proposed in relation to the new Tate.

There were a number of invited respondents to the discussion list ranging from space artists, writers, scientists and architects to curators and art historians.

Questions within this forum included:

  • Why a Tate in Space?
  • Exploration or earthcentricity?
  • Cultural ambition and the search for new audiences
  • Space architecture
  • Space pollution and the practicalities of siting and installing works in zero gravity.
