Performance, new media and advances in new technologies have never been so influential on contemporary artists, shaping the ideas, forms and contexts of contemporary visual culture.

What does all of this mean for those interested in collecting contemporary art?  Contemporary Art Society director, Paul Hobson talks with Elizabeth Neilson, director, Zabludowicz Collection, and artists and curators Paul Purgas and Laura Eldret on interdisiplinarity in relation to collecting and the challenges and opportunities of collecting new media, moving image and performance art.
