Tate Modern's Turbine Hall turns spotlight on migration crisis. Cuban artist Tania Bruguera hopes to move visitors to tears with her latest 'stealth interventions'.

'Most of the Turbine Hall has been covered in shiny black material that is heat-sensitive. Underneath, at the far end, is a hidden portrait of a young man who left Syria in 2011 and found emotional and practical support through SE1 United, the charity Bell helps run. The portrait can only be revealed by people collectively touching the floor.'
