Tate Modern invited five artists and thinkers to freely imagine what a dancing museum could be. Pablo Bronstein reinvents the architecture of Tate Modern; Tim Etchells urges us not to ‘museumify’ dance and instead nurture it as a living, breathing agent for change; Dorothea von Hantelmann looks back at historical interpretations of the museum from writers and anthropologists, and Yvonne Rainer outlines the optimum viewing conditions to allow audience and performer to comfortably inhabit the same space.
