London. Joan Jonas, one of the most significant innovators in video and performance art, will create new work for BMW Tate Live Performance Room - a pioneering strand of live, online performances simultaneously seen by international audiences across world time zones at www.youtube.com/user/tate/tatelive

Since the 1960s, Jonas has transcended genres to develop influential work rooted in space, movement, ritual and gesture. Jonas pioneered the use of film and video in performance, and later began to incorporate fairytales and folklore, turning away from the camera toward a more painterly, narrative and text-based practice. “The Juniper Tree”, at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1979, was Jonas’s first UK performance.
