Born in 1968 in Radeberg, the artist has since made Berlin his home. He exhibited works at London’s Whitechapel Gallery in 1999, just a year after graduating with an MFA from Dresden’s HfbK.
In 2001 Scheibitz had his first solo museum exhibition Ansicht und Plan von toledo (View and Plan of Toledo) at the Kunstmuseum Winterthur in Switzerland.
He was chosen for the 2005 German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale alongside Tino Sehgal, publishing Spielfilm, Musik und Roman on Damien Hirst’s Other Criteria Press that same year.
In 2010 his solo exhibition, Der ungefegte Raum (A Disordered Space), was the first extensive exploration of his unique process of visual association.
