Seemingly out of nowhere, German artist Gregor Schneider exhibits major work at the recently opened TOLOT/heuristic Shinonome complex. His solo show brings together “It’s All Rheydt” (Kolkata, 2011) and photography from his largest undertaking, “Haus u r,” a house in his hometown of Rheydt that, since 1985, has slowly been refashioned from within.

“It’s All Rheydt” (Kolkata, 2011) is a collaborative project between himself and Bengali artisans. During a trip in 2010 to the Indian city of Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta), Schneider was inspired to build a pandal, a temporary structure fabricated for religious ceremonies.
