This chapter argues that the deepest experience of sensation is one where the limits between body and matter or energy become permeable and indiscernible. Here the spectator is caught up in actions, movements, sounds, and energies where I am no longer “I,” a subject considering an object at a distance, but rather disappears into sensations of which he or she become an active part. The Image is considered, then, in terms of performative situations where the singular experience of bodies and perception is reduced, broken down, reconfigured, and redeployed in a space where the border between lived experience and aesthetic experience becomes undecidable. Concepts of sensation and event are exemplified in a phenomenological account of a series of participatory performances directed by Tino Sehgal in Berlin in 2015.

Keywords:   Tino Sehgal, discourse ethics, sensation, event
