Tino Sehgal: The fine art of human interaction | The Economist
"A studio visit with Mr Sehgal consists of meeting the artist on a park bench…"

"As it happens, the artist is not keen on the term “performance” because it suggests a formal separation between artwork and audience. “Situations are much more inclusive. We are in it together,” he explains. His titles often start with the word “this”—which implies a shared moment."

““Photographs are two-dimensional…I work in four dimensions.”

"Mr Sehgal’s rigorous avoidance of documentation extends to a prohibition on written instructions and receipts. When one of his “situations” is sold, the work is described verbally in the presence of lawyers and certain stipulations are made orally…"

"Clearly, Mr Sehgal is not anti-market. Given his resolute refusal to make inanimate objects, however, he does appear to be anti-materialist. Mr Sehgal believes that “it is not so rewarding or efficient or sustainable” to clutter the world with more and more material goods."

17 Dexter Sinister: From the Toolbox of a Serving Library — Program Information — The Banff Centre
"In 2006 Dexter Sinister (David Reinfurt & Stuart Bailey) established a workshop & bookstore of same name in NY, & have since explored aspects of contemporary publishing in diverse contexts. As well as designing, editing, producing & distributing both printed & digital media, they have also worked w/ ambiguous roles & formats, usually in live contexts of galleries & museums. These projects generally play to some form of site-specificity, where a publication or series of events are worked out in public over a set period of time.

Dexter Sinister intend to slowly dissolve all such activities into one single institution, The Serving Library. This overarching project is founded on a consideration of how the role of the library has changed over time—from fixed archive, through circulating collection, to point of distribution. As much about The Library as social furniture as it is a specific model, the project ultimately returns to its point of departure: as a place for learning…"

Leigh Blackall: Situated art, situated learning - En Route by One Step At A Time Like This
"I think the artistic intent of these concepts could be enhanced with study of Joseph Beuys' work, particularly the Free International University, as well as Situationist International and their desire to create environments for discovering and appreciating the true value of things rather than their staged value.

All of this makes for excellent examples to add to my essay in progress on Ubiquitous Learning - a critique, where I'm trying to argue that the words ubiquity and learning have nothing inherently to do with technology, and are instead words of ethical dimension, so the phrase ubiquitous learning should become one more to do with an ethical approach or framework to learning, and not one suggesting a technological determination of it."
