Tobias Rehberger (b.1966 in Esslingen am Neckar/DE) lives and works in Frankfurt am Main and Berlin. He is Professor of Fine Arts since 2001 at the Städelschule. He produces work that flirt with the contemporary status of objects, space, commodification and innovation. Despite its extravagance, humor and disciplinary ambiguity, Rehberger's work reflects his own clear identification as an artist. Major solo exhibitions took place at neugerriemschneider, Berlin; Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; MACRO Museum, Rome; Artelier Contemporary, Graz; Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle; MAXXI – Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Rome; Kunsthalle Mannheim; Kunstraum innsbruck; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Fondazione Prada, Milan; Tate Liverpool; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; and Whitechapel Gallery, London (2004). He was included in group exhibitions at Whitechapel Gallery, London and the 9th Gwangju Biennale: “Roundtable”, Gwangju.
