Taking their own experience of migration as a starting point, the co-researchers in this session take a sidelong look at Tate Britain as a national institution often regarded as the custodian of British Art. Through a series of films and slideshows, the co-researchers look at issues such as the funding of national museums, the place of popular culture, the relationship of national museums to British Imperial history and the status of research.
