Tino Sehgal

Tino Sehgal work takes the form of live situations to be experienced during the opening hours of galleries and museums. Depending upon the response of the audience, these constructed situations may develop in different ways, thereby incorporating a form of participation into the very structure of the works. “Like no other artist Tino Sehgal represents the transfer of choreography and knowledge of dance into fine arts. (…) It’s about the construction and the radical Experience of the present.” (Johannes Odenthal).

Sehgal, born 1976 in London, studied dance and political economics. In 2005, Tino Sehgal represented Germany at the German pavilion at the Venice Biennale. In 2010, the Guggenheim Museum in New York held a monographic exhibition dedicated to his work; and in 2012 he created These Associations for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. Sehgal’s works have entered the collections of Centre Pompidou, the Tate, and MoMA. Lately, in 2013, he received Venice Biennale’s Golden Lion award. Other works: Kiss (2002), This Objective of that Object(2003), This Situation(2007), Yet Untitled(2013).
