The Tate Modern has launched a new digital platform which aims to encourage site visitors to learn about art history.

The Tate Time Machine, which has been created by Blue State Digital alongside the museum, complements the new Tate Modern galleries, which are set to open this month.

The digital platform offers each user a different experience, giving them a unique look at the history of art and the wider impact it has had on society over the last 100 years.

Art that has been curated for the online platform will also be on show in the new physical Tate Modern spaces.

The digital platform aims to “challenge the conventional way in which galleries tell stories about art”, says Blue State Digital account director Haneef Khan, by showing people why the art was made and how it has affected society.
