Each week, Tate Modern attracts over a hundred thousand visitors from all around the world to look at some of the best art in the world.
However, it turns out that one of the most popular sights around the museum is not an exhibited artwork but rather, the neighbouring apartments which can be seen from Tate’s viewing platform. Thousands of visitors gather in awe to take a peek inside the apartments. No other artwork on display attracts as much fascination as these open plan apartments.
This attraction has become such a success that most recently, legal action has been taken against the Tate.
However, before an official decision has been made in court, I installed a dozen binoculars on the viewing platform to help the many museum visitors enjoy this contemporary artwork even more, and up close.
Here the big warning sign on the viewing tower’s pillars “Please respect our neighbours’ privacy” acts as the caption of Tate’s most popular art piece.
The view belongs to the many and not only a few.
