A piece of Tino Sehgal interpreted by Boris Charmatz
(sans titre) (2000)

(untitled) (2000), conceived by the artist Tino Sehgal before his transition from dance to the visual arts, aims to provide a theatrical exhibition of twentieth-century "scenic dance", transposing the choreographic practices and associated visions of the body into an aesthetic order close to that of the museum. When the artist performed it (naked, without set, nor music) at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, curator Jens Hoffmann said to the artist, "... it is like a dance museum. "Since then, many dancers have tried to incorporate twentieth-century dance in their own way.... But this solo is also historic in the sense that it allowed the artist to position himself in the museum field.
