Tate Modern & You - DreamlifeTate Modern & You – Dreamlife (Rotherhithe)

For the 2017 edition of ‘Tate Modern & You’ photographer Romain Mader will explore the dreamlife of residents of Rotherhithe as well as stories of the neighbourhood. These narratives will inspire a specially created backdrop and props which will be photographed and feature in a newspaper distributed in July 2017.

Tate Modern and You is a publication that is regularly produced in partnership with a neighbourhood or section of the local community, in collaboration with an artist. It aims to make stronger links with different communities across Southwark and Lambeth. In past publications, artists have worked with local organisations such as the Blackfriars Settlement and Pembroke House. Often acting as a forum for local discussion, Tate Modern and You gets delivered to communities around the gallery and has been doing so for many years.
