In his video work of the same title, Martin Beck presents the assembly and disassembly of the seminal 1948 Struc-Tube exhibition system by the American designer George Nelson. This record of ‘the artist in social communication’ also includes essays by Emily Pethick, Bill Horrigan, and Martin Beck that contextualise the work within contemporary artistic practice and elaborate on aspects of sovereignty and control in modern exhibition history.
