Tino Seghal

Like no other artist of his generation, Berliner Tino Sehgal represents a radical redefinition of art and its experience. Sehgal constructs situations rather than material objects. His media are the human voice, physical movements and social interaction that are initiated and enacted by the interpreters of the work who address visitors through conversation, song and choreography.

Tickets 10 €/ red. 7 €. Admission free for those aged 16 or under.

Martin-Gropius-Bau from 06/28/2015 to 08/08/2015
