TOBIAS REHBERGER
INSPIRATION IS A LITTLE TOWN IN CHINA – IN PAPER

In his first solo exhibition in an art institution in Berlin, Tobias Rehberger (*1966) takes complete possession of Haus am Waldsee and changes it spectacularly. We continue the series of exhibitions with internationally renowned artists who live and work in Berlin or are closely associated with the city. Under the title „Inspiration is a little town in China – in Paper“, Rehberger‘s intensive preoccupation with the material paper will be presented for the first time ever in a separate exhibition in Germany. As usually, his work sets new standards for what art could be.

Rehberger‘s projects develop on the basis of broad philosophical questions. Conditions are not simply accepted, but continuously doubted, questioned and relativized. His handling of objects and situations are ignited by the basic feeling of uncertainty: „Uncertainty about what actually seems so clear and simple (…) It is about uncertainty in regard to what is called art.” (TR in an interview 2014, translated).

Curated by Katja Blomberg and Tobias Rehberger. 

Special thanks to the Collection Deutsche Bank for generous loans.

Catalogue in German and English with an article by Elisa Tamaschke, 18 Euro, published at the beginning of October by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König.
