"Martin Kippenberger's work has always been inextricably linked with his personal life, to the extent that at times this has dominated its critical reception. This book aims to redress the balance, concentrating on his art and exploring its visual and conceptual aspects. Kippenberger's varied oeuvre included paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photography, prints, and artist's books, executed in a wide variety of styles. The authors examine the themes underlying his work, including Socialist Realism and kitsch; self portraiture and myth; punk and anti-romanticism; exile and homelessness; the importance of humour and its roots in German political realities; and the artist's interest in language and the influence on his work of literature. The inclusion of a new translation of Kippenberger's final interview ensures his own, idiosyncratic voice is present."--BOOK JACKET.
