The Stedelijk Museum is pleased to invite you to the special series of Gallery Talks given by academics, curators, and writers in relation to the project A Year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal, on view from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2015. During the tours, guest speakers will lead visitors to one of the unique live works by artist Tino Seghal and discuss the experience-based art on the basis of their own areas of expertise, research, or interest. In this way, the Stedelijk Museum provides opportunities for new and, above all, personal reflections on contemporary art.

All of the speakers are specially invited due to their ability to frame Sehgal’s work, both within the realm of visual art and other disciplinary fields. Curator Vivian Ziherl is not only an experienced art critic and curator in the field of live art, she is also strongly engaged with political and social tendencies in our contemporary society.
