This event has ended.
This exhibition, made possible in collaboration with the Estate of Martin Kippenberger and Galerie Gisela Capitain, will be the artist’s first major solo exhibition in Japan. Kippenberger was one of the most influential artists to come out of postwar Germany and he played a pivotal role in establishing the postmodernist aesthetic between the late 1970s and 1990s. He was an artist, actor, dancer, heavy drinker, novelist, musician, and traveler. His unique and wild lifestyle was matched by his prolific and varied output, which spanned multiple media including paintings, sculptures, collages, posters, photographs, performances, installations, multiples, and books. The core of the current exhibition will be a large-scale installation, which was produced in the 1990s and comprises 38 multiples, six posters, one painting, and three hotel drawings. The exhibition promises to be a unique opportunity to see Kippenberger’s works, which have been rarely seen in Japan.
