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!
Now that home has become the very epicenter of life, it’s THE time for Moebling! Try it yourself some time and share your pics on social media with #moebling. You can do better than co-founder Bart below:
