To mark the opening of the much anticipated, revamped Tate Modern, with its new Switch building more than doubling the amount of space it has on London's Bankside, a look behind the scenes to reveal new director Frances Morris's drive to increase the amount of international, female and performance-related work to make it a museum for the 21st century. With exclusive access to the Tate's 'secret stores', where some of the new work will come from, members of its congregation explain how they feel the £260m transformation of this cathedral to contemporary art is money well spent, while others think its expansion in a time of recession is sacrilegious.

Tim Marlow takes an exclusive look behind the scenes of Carsten Höller's Test Site installation in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. The Test Site is a set of five stainless steel slides intended to propel members of the public down from the highest floors of the Tate Modern to the very bottom. The slides invite visitors to become part of the art, move out of their comfort zone, free their senses and slide. Somewhere between a monumental set of sculptural forms and an oversized, rather menacing, playground, Höller describes his creation as "a unique experience which forces you to let go, to give up control and think, oh my God, I'm going into the abyss." Featuring a rare interview with Höller and with unique access from the early stages through to the opening day, this film charts the progress of a fascinating art project.

This new resource investigates the current state of selling, whether it is groceries, politicians, information, or motorcars. Unlike any other phenomenon, "retailisation" reflects the complexity and diffusion of information processes and the media in the online market. The authors explore the all-pervasive nature of retail in the physical world, the virtual world, and the peripheral spaces in between.
Coverage includes:
* Interviews with representatives from Asda, MOMA, The Tate Modern, Wal-Mart, Sony, Habitat, Manchester United, and Volkswagen
* Individual interviews with Bill Mitchell, Dean of Architecture at MIT, architects Jon Jerde, Rem Koolhas, and Ben van Berkel, as well as David Peek, the psychologist behind the Bluewater Shopping Mall.
