Artist Profiles > R > Tobias Rehberger

Tobias Rehberger gained recognition with his Golden Lion Award for best artist in the 53rd Venice Biennale and is considered one of the most important contemporary German artists today. Drawing his subjects from quotidian objects, Rehberger creates situations and environments that disrupt our initial perception of objects and their functions, reconstructing our perspective, outlook and relationship with the subjects. He also challenges the fine line between art, architecture and design, working with geometry, colours and abstract forms, developing a distinctive style with works that reflect an interest in man’s relationship to mass culture.

 

Major exhibitions include the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt (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); Whitechapel Gallery, London (2004); and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2003), as well as The Gwangju Biennale, Venice Biennale, Manifesta, Berlin Biennale and the Yokohama Triennale.
