Tino Sehgal (* 1976 in London ) is a German-British artist . He calls his works "constructed situations". These are "interpreted" by instructed persons and only exist at the moment, as they may neither be documented nor reproduced in the media.
Tino Sehgal was born in London as the son of an Indian living in Germany and a German. He spent his school days in Böblingen and Sindelfingen . He studied economics at the Humboldt University in Berlin and dance at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen . He lives in Berlin.
Together with Thomas Scheibitz , he designed the German pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale from June 12th to November 6th, 2005. He selected 30 amateur actors for two situations. On the one hand, This is so contemporary , which was intended as a reflection on the position of art in today's world. In the second work, This is exchange , the actors involved the visitors in discussions on the subject of the market economy.
Sehgal was nominated for the 2007 National Gallery Prize for Young Art .
At dOCUMENTA (13) , which took place in Kassel in 2012, Sehgal played in the lightless Bode-Saal of the Grand City Hotel Hessenland . The visitors entering were surrounded by 12 actors, individually or in small groups, who danced around them audibly and perceptibly singing, humming, crawling, clicking in a choreographically defined basic rhythm and trying to include those who had entered into the action.
Sehgal is married to the art historian Dorothea von Hantelmann . The couple have two children and live in Berlin.
The art of Tino Sehgal only takes shape the moment the viewer meets it. For his works he uses interpreters who come into contact with the visitors of the respective exhibition in the form of movements, spoken words or singing. For example, in an exhibition he has interpreters disguised as museum attendants sing a sentence like This is propaganda, you know, you know . His works, which are only realized in museums or art exhibitions, are for sale and can be performed for months during the entire opening time. At the express request of the artist, there may be no film, photographic or other documentation of any of his works. No invitations to exhibitions are printed or catalog texts are published. The works are bought or sold exclusively through verbal negotiations with the artist and therefore only remain in the memory of all those involved.
