Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster. TH.2058

TH.2058 is the ninth commission in Tate’s Unilever Series for which an artist is invited to transform the space of the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. In this, Gonzalez-Foerster’s first ever commission in the UK, the Turbine Hall is transported to the year 2058. Incessant rain is plaguing London, changing its landscape and forcing its inhabitants to seek shelter within Tate Modern, amongst monumentally large sculptures swollen by the rainfall, fragmentary film projections and books, rescued from the rain. Without knowing Gonzalaz-Foerster’s dramatic plans for the space, some of the world’s leading science-fiction writers, critics and cultural commentators have been asked to imagine what the Turbine Hall might be like in 2058, and their responses combine with photographs of the work and an interview with the artist to create another, metaphorical world within the book. Contributors include: Catherine Dufour; Luc Lagier; Lisette Lagnado; Jessica Morgan; Jeff Noon; Philippe Parreno; and Enrique Vila-Matas.
