24 Stops #rehbergerweg
The Rehberger-Weg, which is around five kilometers long, links two countries, two municipalities, two cultural institutions – and countless stories. The path runs between Weil am Rhein and Riehen, between the Fondation Beyeler and the Vitra Campus. Guided by «24 Stops», 24 waymarkers created by the artist Tobias Rehberger, walkers can explore a uniquely diverse natural and cultural landscape.
The Rehberger-Weg and its waymarkers therefore provide an opportunity to get to know both the history and stories of the surroundings and its inhabitants and to tell them again, as well as encouraging an excursion into nature.
The first 12 waymarkers were installed in September 2015. From June 2016 on, «24 Stops» will be completed with all 24 waymarkers in place.
The Artist: Tobias Rehberger
Tobias Rehberger (*1966 in Esslingen am Neckar, lives and works in Frankfurt am Main) ranks as one of Germany’s most important contemporary artists – a reputation cemented by his prize-winning redesign of the Bar Caffetteria in the gardens of the 53rd Venice Biennale.
Rehberger says the following about«24 Stops»: “In an exemplary way, the project geographically combines two ‘neuralgic points’ of aesthetics: the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein and the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen. The artwork is a functional object, and the functional object an artwork. The wonderful landscape and the proximity to nature complete the experience.”
