Video works, space installations, wall paintings, environments, furniture designs, sculpture, ceiling decoration: Tobias Rehberger (b.1966 in Esslingen) as an artist working conceptually cannot be pinned down to any single medium. But a certain complex of questions is always the motive behind an œuvre that is located between art, architecture and design. What is a work of art, how much of it is contextually determined? Or does it merely derive from a contemporary cliche of art? The public can in most cases "walk into" Rehberger's works which oscillate between functionality and uselessness, and this removes the nimbus of the untouchable art work.
