Tracey Emin about “My Bed”

When it comes to installations, one of the first artworks that come to my mind is My Bed by Tracey Emin. Whenever we talk about it in class the commonest initial reaction is “no way! that can’t be art”. I’m not an expert, but I like how provocative it is and the questions it raises. Here is an interview with Tracey Emin explaining, among other things, what The Bed means to her after so many years. A listening comprehension activity is available here tracey emin

Updated information on this artwork : Tracey Emin’s My Bed is up for sale at what may be a dream price to some
