TH.2058 at Tate Modern

The latest load of cobblers at Tate Modern is 200 blue or yellow bunk beds in the Turbine Hall. You can lay on one and read a novel about humanity under threat: H.G. Wells' War Of The Worlds or Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 for instance. TH.2058 is the fevered brainchild of French ex-museum guard Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, who wants Londoners to imagine that we're seeking refuge from an unspecified environmental disaster. It's called The Credit Crunch, Dominique, and you're not helping by wasting money in this way. There are also a few hangovers from previous shows, such as Louise Bourgeois' ropey old spider. This tosh opens tomorrow. Given some urns, it could make a useful soup kitchen for tramps and illegal immigrants over Christmas.
