If you are concerned about excess (the excessive proliferation of goods in Western society)

If you like to discuss and participate actively in the creation of a piece of art —

come to the Princeton University School of Architecture between November 20 and 24 for a contemporary salon, “This Situation,” staged by art/dance/aesthetics rebel Tino Sehgal.

What constitutes a work of art? the art experience? For Sehgal, quoting the press release, it entails a direct engagement, in the here and now, between visitors and players in carefully choreographed situations. The visitor is conceived as a fundamental part of the work and may, if he/ she chooses to participate, dramatically alter its unfolding.
