First Trip to Tate Modern

Lost that Tate Modern virginity last week! My favourite piece was the blackboard on the left (one of the Four Blackboards, by Joseph Beuys). It simply reads:

He who in 1972 can live carefree and sleep peacefully despite knowing that two thirds of humanity are hungry or dying of starvation while a large proportion of the well-fed third must take slimming cures in order to stay alive should ask himself what kind of man one is and whether, moreover, he is a man at all.’
