Marta Minujín, the creator of Big Ben Lying Down for MIF21, joined us for a special online conversation on the Festival’s opening evening

On the first night of MIF21, and as part of The Guardian’s 200th birthday celebrations, artist Marta Minujín joined us to present an exploration of what it means to be a ‘work in progress’, drawing on six decades of creating radical, pioneering art – then discussed these themes further in conversation with Alex Clark of The Guardian.

The online event celebrated the opening of Big Ben Lying Down with Political Books, a colossal 42-metre model of a toppled Big Ben created for MIF21 and installed in Piccadilly Gardens for the duration of the Festival. Watch the entire event above – and discover Big Ben Lying Down at this link.
