Sehgal is working on a radical redefinition of art by constructing situations rather than objects. Consequently, throughout his works he explores social processes, cultural conventions and the allocation of roles, thereby not only redefining art production but also reconsidering fundamental values of our social system, including sustainability, originality and ownership.
