BERLIN  •  Nationalgalerie  •  25 February - 18 August 2013
 
 
The 25th of February 2013 would have been Martin Kippenberger’s 60th birthday. To mark the occasion, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin is showing 300 of his works. Kippenberger died at the age of just 44. His life cannot be separated from his works. He was a painter, actor, writer, musician, drinker, dancer, traveller, charmer, enfant terrible and someone who liked to stage himself, in short, an ‘exhibitionist’, as he himself said. The intention behind the show is to bring out this interpenetration of personality and oeuvre, along with the enormous variety of his artistic output across the total spectrum of his creative work. The foundation is the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection, which includes such central works as ‘Uno di voi, un tedesco in Firenze’ (1976–1977), ‘Martin, ab in die Ecke und schäm dich’ (1989), and Kippenberger’s numerous drawings on hotel paper. Private photographs, books, record sleeves and films are on view.
