‘Ideal worlds’ are often conceived without people, but I enjoy working with the messiness and uncertainty that are inevitable in social situations.

Regenfenster, 1999 – In real life, Tate Modern, London

Tate Lates tomorrow! The last Friday of each month, 6–10pm, all events @Tate_Modern are free, & entry to Olafur’s exhibition In real life is reduced to £10. Tate Lates will kick off the Cubic structural evolution project & feature a Little Sun blackout.


Watch Olafur in an interview with Zeinab Badawi on HARDtalk from the BBC. ‘How far can artists and their work change the world? Can artistic endeavour lead to concrete action to mitigate the impact of global warming, or is this fanciful? Zeinab Badawi is at the Tate Modern in London to interview award-winning Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson about his new exhibition and why he believes art can be a force for good in the world.’ – HARDtalk

You can also listen to the radio version of Olafur’s interview with Zeinab Badawi on HARDtalk here:

'In the next 200 years, all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path', the plaque reads, in Icelandic and English. 'This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.'
