About the artwork
In On Otto, Rehberger deconstructs the filmmaking process by creating a backward film, beginning with the design of the advertising poster and ending with the script. Rehberger invited specialist artists and creatives across all mediums to collaborate on the project, including leading actors such as Kim Bassinger and Danny Devito, who were to act as spectators. The film poster was operated as the starting point from which all the collaborators derived their inspiration. The result was a bold film and architectural installation that encourages reflection on communication and the production process itself.
