Tobias Rehberger: On Otto
Foreword by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli. Edited by Antonella Soldaini. Text by Germano Celant, Ina Blom.
This instantly collectible exhibition catalogue for German artist Tobias Rehberger's exhibition at Milanís Fondazione Prada includes two brightly colored volumes bound together by four colored, custom-made elastic bands. Once these are pulled from the set, two very independent pieces are revealed. The first is an exhaustive reconstruction of Rehberger's solo exhibitions from 1990 to 2007, reproduced in glossy color, with installation views and details of his architecture-based sculptures and other works. The second volume is a more concise artist's book, including an interview with prominent curator and art historian Germano Celant. In this second, slimmer book, which presents his audacious film and installation project, On Otto (featuring work by Kim Basinger, Willem Dafoe, Danny DeVito, Ennio Morricone and others), Rehberger investigates the dynamics of filmmaking by reconstructing the process itself, going backwards. This book, imaginatively designed by Double Standard, includes texts by Miuccia Prada, Celant and Ina Blom.
