All the participants were invited to submit a script inspired by Tino Sehgal’s artistic practice. The gallery received over 200 applications from artists aged 20-35 from countries all over the world. The open call triggered a range of experimental responses and spans topics such as language, literature, physicality, economics and privacy.
Following a careful selection process thirty successful artists, from countries including Russia, Finland, Israel, Greece and South Korea, have each been chosen to perform their work over one day, with a different performance presented on each of the exhibition’s thirty days, Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 6pm.
