Since Tate Modern opened in London in 2000, its Turbine Hall has hosted memorable installations; the way artists have interpreted this vast industrial space has revolutionized public perceptions of contemporary art. The annual Hyundai Commission, now in its third year, is by the Danish collective SUPERFLEX, founded in 1993 in Copenhagen by Bj?rnstjerne Christiansen, Jakob Fenger, and Rasmus Nielsen. Migration, alternative energy, and the power of global capital are just some of the motives behind their highly engaging and often humorous work; they are best known for their playfully subversive installations and films. Created in close collaboration with SUPERFLEX, this book features a fully illustrated survey of their work and an in-depth conversation between the artists and curator Donald Hyslop.
