Content descriptions

Summary: German-born artist Martin Kippenberger died at an early age. During his lifetime, this sharp-tongued, intellectual agent provocateur exhibited a love of experimentation, occasional Dadaist, and exhibitionist traits included. His internationally acclaimed and amazingly comprehensive oeuvre of less than three decades exhausted all categories of artistic creativity: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, music, curating, poster design, and book publishing. His collection of aphorisms, '67 Improved Papertigers Not Afraid of Repetition' written in English and first published in 1987 by Edition Julie Sylvester, experiments with the principle of repetition and shows the now legendary artist for what he is: a master of fencing.
Language Note: In English and German.
Subject: Kippenberger, Martin, 1953-1997.
