This book "Kippenberger & Friends" is a celebration of provocative and prolific German artist Martin Kippenberger on what would have been his 60th birthday.. This collection of 25 conversations with the artist’s friends, fellow artists, curators and gallerists uncovers the Kippenberger myth. Personal and intimate recollections from the artist’s peers (through text contributions and over 50 photographs) provide an in-depth look at the artist’s life and his contribution to postwar German art. Edited by Josephine von Perfall, this book includes interviews with Roland Augustine (gallerist, New York), Lukas Baumewerd (architect), Klaus vom Bruch (artist), Werner Büttner (artist), Gisela Captain (gallerist, Cologne/Berlin), Albert Oehlen (artist) and many more.
