As part of the EU funded project Inside Installations: the
preservation and presentation of installation art, Time-based Media
Conservation and Digital Programmes at Tate have collaborated to
create an e-learning package designed to provide a rare opportunity
for the public to go behind the scenes and explore the challenges of
collecting, installing and caring for complex installations.

The site includes interviews with Bruce Nauman and his assistant,
Michael Short and explores the roles of the curator and the
conservator and a range of themes including preservation and
co-ownership. While the site presents information of interest to a
general audience, it also provides technical material not commonly
available to the public. This e-learning package aims to provide a
rich source of information to enhance an understanding of this work,
provide a tool for adult learners, and a resource for colleagues in
other institutions interested in the care and management of
installation art.

Mapping the Studio II is co-owned by Tate, the Pompidou Centre in
Paris, and the Kunstmuseum in Basel. The installation is currently
on display at the Centre George Pompidou in Paris.
