Visual artist Christoph Ziegler explores the relationship between human body and objects or, more precisely, between man and furniture in self-portraits and performances. Moebling is Ziegler’s self-invented anglicism of the German word Moebel (furniture).

We think it’s a brilliant idea, and very funny too. Ziegler offers a playful approach to “kinetic meditation” at home with sarcastic references to the wellness movement and the ever-expanding culture of self-optimization. Ziegler’s commandments are simple and self-explanatory: turn your sofa, your table, chairs, carpets or your vacuum cleaner into Moebling tools!
