Masterclass Tino Sehgal

Thursday 23 February

Tino Sehgal (DE/UK) is a British-German artist whose works, which he calls ‘constructed situations’, involve one or more people carrying out instructions conceived by the artist. What all of Sehgal's works have in common is that they reside only in the space and time they occupy, and in the memory of the work and its reception. The artist himself describes his works as 'constructed situations', whose materials are the human voice, language, movement, and interaction, without the production of physical objects. His pieces are choreographies that are regularly staged in museums or galleries, and continuously executed for the entire duration of a show. In 2012, he will present a newly commissioned work for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern, London. These masterclasses are made possible with the support of the Mondriaan Fund.
