  • The transdisciplinary duo have taken this guided tour with a difference to a number of museums and galleries since its inception in 2009. Each version of the project is specific to the venue it takes place in, responding to its collections, exhibitions and history. And as Sam Phillips writes in RA Magazine, it is as much a tour through the visitor's imagination as the actual physical space of the Royal Academy.

    In the video below, Christer Lundahl and Martina Seitl along with assistant artist Rachel Alexander describe how the project is being put together, and explain why the Summer Exhibition provides such an interesting subject.
