Tobias Rehberger

The wide-ranging work of Frankfurt artist Tobias Rehberger (born 1966) moves between the opposite poles of art and everyday culture. His installations, sculptures and objects focus on the interactive moment of art, life and design in both a con- temporary and sensual way. Since 1997, he has also taken over public spaces. In 40 projects in the last twelve years, he recalls history and stories, makes unused places visible again in their forgotten beauty, disrupts familiar perspectives, directs our attention to the transitory. In 2009, Tobias Rehberger was commissioned to design the cafeteria for the 53rd Venice Biennial. For his project »Was du liebst, bringt dich auch zum Weinen« he won the Golden Lion for Best Artist.
