Comedian, writer and art-lover Frank Skinner whizzes through the history of performance art in this film for Tate.

Skinner is one of a number of celebrities, including Alan Cumming and Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi, who are fronting the films which Tate hopes will help “unlock art” and bring it to a wider audience. All of the films in the series deal with big topics in art in just five minutes.

Tate is a family of four art galleries, two of which are in London: Tate Modern and Tate Britain.
