Mona Hatoum – ‘Nothing Is a Finished Project’


Mona Hatoum creates a challenging vision of our world, exposing its contradictions and complexities. TateShots visited the artist during the install of her first major survey at Tate Modern, covering 35 years from her early radical performances and video pieces, to sculptures and large-scale installations. The artist talks about her practice, her materials and the artwork on display. Please note that at 0:36 the artwork ‘Cellules’ is spelled incorrectly. We apologise for this mistake. Mona Hatoum’s work is currently on display at Tate Modern:
