In his first solo exhibition in an art institution in Berlin, Tobias Rehberger (*1966) takes complete possession of Haus am Waldsee and changes it spectacularly. For the first time ever, his intensive use of paper becomes visible – a material developed 2000 years ago in China. As usually, his work sets new standards for what art could be.

In addition to drawings and watercolors from the early 1990s to the present day, diary-like collages and series of large-scale computer prints, the exhibition also features three-dimensional works, in which the sculptor last sold his authorship to termites. For 250 million years, they have been building man-high ventilation towers that look like modern 1950s sculptures. Rehberger’s continuously pursued approach is to question certainties about the familiar. In the field of the examination of paper, this becomes evident with a lot of subtle humour.
