Tobias Rehberger (*1966 in Esslingen am Neckar/DE) lives and works in Frankfurt am Main and Berlin. Himself a Städelschule graduate and art professor since 2001, he produces work of great artistic complexity and intimacy with design. The production flirts with the contemporary status of objects, space, commodification and innovation. Yet, for all its extravagance, humor and disciplinary ambiguity, Rehberger's work reflects his own clear identification as an artist. As he has put it, the work emerges from a paradigm of art - that is, the thinking and production of an artist. Major solo exhibitions of the artist’s work include: Home and Away and Outside, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2014); Tobias Rehberger: Wrap it up, MACRO Museum, Rome (2014); Artelier Contemporary, Graz (2012); Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle (2011); Tobias Rehberger, MAXXI – Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo (2010); Kunsthalle Mannheim (2009); Kunstraum innsbruck (2008); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2008); Fondazione Prada, Milan (2007); Tate Liverpool (2006); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid (2005); and Whitechapel Gallery, London (2004).
