Tobias Rehberger “I do if I donʼt”

The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart is presenting the largest and most comprehensive exhibition devoted to the work of Tobias Rehberger (b. 1966) in the Stuttgart region to date. For his sculptures, wall pictures, and installations, the artist, a native of Esslingen now active worldwide, makes use of various concepts and ideas from architecture, design or even music. Rehberger sets everyday objects and spatial structures into unexpected combinations, thus giving them a new interpretation.

The exhibition features the artist’s central work groups from the last three decades. These include his multiform light installations, the so-called Window Pictures, and Vases Portraits as well as a series of sculptures that play with the effects of light and shadow. Installations created especially for the show offer viewers a variety of opportunities for participation. These works are supplemented by current productions. Among them is a controllable installation of lighting elements on the building’s façade that becomes a colorful entrance to the museum. The control to it is located in front of the museum entrance, inviting passersby to interact with Rehberger’s work.

The artist has designed the 3rd upper floor of the cube with 3D-printed sculptures as a place for conversing and lingering. Tobias Rehberger has also created a ceramic edition consisting of plate, bowl and mug expressly for the exhibition. The unique pieces were produced using a 3D printing process and then individually finished by him.
