Will Gompertz: Are Carsten Holler’s installations art?

An exhibition of Carsten Holler's work opened at London's Hayward Gallery this week.

It is full of the German artist's trademark playful installations, with which the visitor is invited to interact. There are a spiralling slide, a Flying Machine, two remote control beds, and goggles that turn the world upside down.

All of which amused BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz, but he was not convinced that they were actually works of art just because they were in a gallery and made by an artist.
