Martin Herbert assesses the work of Tino Sehgal and finds ‘the most radical, far-reaching, beautifully generous art programme’ of the artist's generation. And in a second article about the UK-born artist, whose work is at Tate Modern this summer for the Unilever Series, Jennifer Uleman recalls her heady time as an interpreter in Sehgal’s This Progress.
Brian Dillon writes on future-oriented art of the last decade or two, looking at Omer Fast’s Nostalgia trilogy, Sean Lynch’s DeLorean Progress Report and Ben Rivers’s Slow Action, while J.J. Charlesworth interviews sci-fi writer China Miéville and Jonathan T.D. Neil flight-tests Tom Sachs’s mission to Mars.
