The Golden Lion award at the 2009 Venice Biennale underscores the fact that Tobias Rehberger is one of today’s most influential and successful contemporary artists. Now the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt presents a wide-ranging retrospective. The exhibition features high-profile projects such as the installation New York Bar Oppenheimer during Frieze New York 2013, a dizzying blackand- white sculpture as well as a working cafe. This catalog not only documents the exhibition but also includes other featured work. Rehberger makes use of conventional materials from everyday life, thwarting the artificial character imagined by their form and coloring. He contradicts expectations further when his works function as objects of day-to-day use, walking the line between functional demands and the aesthetic directives of “fine art.” An essay from curator Matthias Ulrich positions Rehberger’s work in historical conceptual art.
