Martin Kippenberger (born in 1953 in Dortmund, died in 1997 in Vienna) is one of the most important and most controversial artists of the 20th century. A real personality cult surrounded him during his creative years and still surrounds him today. He also very quickly employed it to his benefit: From the first stickers to his final paintings (all self-portraits), it's all about the artist figure "Kippy". Kippenberger's work, which ranges from painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, poster, installation, performance, artist book and writings to curatorial and collector practices, draws on an ability to be classified and the "-isms" of art history.
Kippenberger places a special focus on language, whether as text in an image, a pun or a slogan. He also slaved away on his role models and emulators Gerhard Richter, Joseph Beuys and Pablo Picasso with large pictorial series. - The exhibition at the Bank Austria Kunstforum illuminates all aspects of Martin Kippenberger's wide-ranging creative talent.
