The MAK shows posters by Tobias Rehberger



For years Tobias Rehberger has been operating successfully on the borderline between art and design. His cafeteria in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni at the 2009 Venice Biennale was awarded a Golden Lion. Now, however, the Museum für Angewandte Kunst (MAK) in Frankfurt is not showing Rehberger's designs for furniture, lamps, or vases. As the title to the exhibition, Flat, already signalizes, the focus is on the posters, wallpaper, and wall works of the sculptor, who teaches at the Städel Art Academy.

The show is not limited to the actual museum building. Rehberger's posters, specially designed for the MAK project, are also to be found in Frankfurt's city center. In the context of the exhibition, Rehberger continues this democratization of art even further: fans can purchase some of his computer-generated wall pieces for no more than the cost of production and then install them at home. The 1966-born artist consistently questions the boundaries between private, museum, and public space; between original work and reproduction; between fine and applied arts. The Deutsche Bank Collection has been continuously acquiring works by Tobias Rehberger since 1992. In addition, the artist has created two editions for the bank.
