Tino Sehgal

The artist Tino Sehgal was born in London in 1976, where he later studied economics and dance. In 2005 he represented Germany at the Venice Biennale. In 2010 the New York Guggenheim dedicated an extensive solo exhibition to him. In 2012 as part of the Unilever Series, the Tate Modern in London presented his most comprehensive work to date with These Associations; in 2016 the Palais de Tokyo in Paris make their entire exhibition space available to him for three months. In 2013 Tino Sehgal is nominated for the Turner Prize and honoured with the Golden Lion at the 55th Venice Biennale. He lives in Berlin.

Tino Sehgal’s work is intangible; there is no object, no image, no documentation. His work takes shape in the moment at which the audience encounters it. What remains is the experience of a radical present. Since 2000, he has been constructing live situations, where artists come into contact with spectators via movements, conversations or singing and he invites them to influence the structure of the work. Venue and context of his interactions are museums, galleries, art fairs, biennales and festivals.
