A conversation with Sophia Al-Maria and boychild about the making of Beast Type Song

Entitled BTS of BTS (Behind the scenes of Beast Type Song), this event will play with the format of a behind-the-scenes talk. The artists share elements of text, sound, correspondence and deleted scenes that are not present in the work, but which were important in its creation.

By exposing the hidden processes, both mundane and poetic, this evening hopes to find ways to speak about events and experiences that have been betrayed or misrepresented by language, and to show how a single gesture might speak more clearly than a thousand words.

Beast Type Song will be screened at the end of this event and is on display as part of Tate Britain Art Now series until 23 February 2020.
