Art e-Facts 73

Over the past eight years Berlin based British artist Tino Sehgal has been
“rethinking the notion of a product as a transformation of actions not as a
transformation of materials.” and has become known for making art without actually making any objects.

Direct experience is an essential component in the work and his working
methods involve organizing and instructing people (adults; often posing as
museum guards; teenagers or children) to use their body and/or voice to
construct “situations” that can be observed and experienced.
