Turbine Hall, Tate Modern. Bankside, London, UK.
Two mounted police officers patrol the museum space, guiding and controlling the audience
In Tania Bruguera’s Tatlin’s Whisper #5 two police officers use crowd control techniques that are familiar to anyone who has attended a pop concert, football match or political demonstration.
The performance might include: closing off the gallery entrance or entrances; manipulating the audience into a single group and encircling it to tighten the group; frontal confrontation with the horse; and breaking up the audience into two distinct groups.
The performance happens unannounced.
This event is part of the opening weekend for the new Tate Modern.
