Tate launches a new online resource exploring the conservation of
Carlos Garaicoa's installation Letter to the Censors 2003.


As part of the EU funded project Inside Installations: the
preservation and presentation of installation art, Tate is launching
the second in a series of case studies which explore challenges
posed in the conservation and display of artists' installations.

The site includes video interviews with Carlos Garaicoa, the curator
and conservators. In addition to exploring some very practical
decisions that needed to be made regarding the display and
conservation of this work, the site also investigates aspects of
Garaicoa's practice and issues connected to the international art
scene and Biennale culture. The site aims to provide information of
interest to a general audience as well as provide technical
information not commonly available to the public. We hope that this
resource will provide a tool for adult learners, and a resource for
colleagues in other institutions. The case study researcher for this
project was Tina Weidner, Assistant Time-based Media Conservator,
