  4. 4. The Happy ending of Franz Kafka, America 1972<br />Based on Kafka’s novel America <br />‘a circus in town, looking to employ reliable hands, helpers, doers, self-confident handlers and the like. Outside the circus tent, in my imagination, there would be tables and chairs set up for job interviews’- Kippenberger<br />“You develop a gaze so that you can discover it for yourself.”<br />
  5. 5. InfluencesAfter being asked “which artist do you feel close to” Kippenberger replied “whenever I see an artist that is good looking, I feel drawnbecause I figure the head perfectly matches the work. But of course that can be boring. Giacometti was very good looking, his sculptures were very good looking, but I still feel there’s something missing.” <br />“As far as Léger goes, I like him absolutely.”<br />“… And Zobernig, I like him a lot. Everyone feels drawn to the remarkable things in life”<br />

  23. 23. Why Kippenberger is a significant artist in 20th/21st century<br />He produced a wide range of work from the mid 1970’s using a remarkable range of media and never sticking to one particular style.<br />Irony he created in his work by questioning his subjects. <br />His bold concept's behind his work and re-occurring themes such as<br />Playing with the idea that the artist is an individual who’s work is independent <br />Criticizing society, politics, work relationships<br />His performative personality<br />
