Thesis: Touching Tino Sehgal and Vito Acconci - (im)possible encounters
The thesis is an analysis of two artists' works through the ideas of the philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy. In the text I expand Nancy's concept of the 'image', what Nancy calls the 'distinct', to include the performative works by Tino Sehgal and Vito Acconci. The analysis allows for thinking differences and similarities in the respective artists' works, as well as for a deeper understanding of how 'touch' functions in and through art.
