Course Description 
London-born and Berlin-based artist Tino Sehgal is best known for his “situations,” which are artworks that rely on interplays between the visitors and those enacting the work. Adopting elements from the worlds of choreography, economy, politics, and art, Sehgal’s pieces entail different forms of participation, which change according to the unique experience of each visitor. In this live presentation, the artist shares some of the influences behind his distinctive creative approach, giving the audience a peek into his practice which favors repeatability and temporality over physicality and permanence.  

No prior knowledge of art is necessary.
