> DESCRIPTION


Parallel to the extensive Kippenberger exhibition
at Hamburger Bahnhof Museum of
Contemporary Art – which includes the photographic
floor collage for Claudia Skoda –
Kicken Berlin will be showing photographic
works by the prematurely deceased artist.
A Leica camera was Kippenberger’s constant
companion from the early 1970s on,
and everyday objects and situations provided
continual material. Pictures from Florence,
where Kippenberger spent some
time in 1976, served for example as the
foundation of his series of paintings Uno di
voi, un Tedesco in Firenze. The presentation
of bizarre and playful scenes in Claudia
Skoda’s Kreuzberg shared artist flat –
Kippenberger’s first Berlin home base in
the late 1970s – is collected from Kippenberger’s
unusually productive photographic
work. Skoda and her knitting machine in the
Kottbusser Tor subway station or at Tegel
airport’s arrival terminal, her factory loft,
and the streets of Berlin are the focus of
the composition. A double self-portrait with
Skoda, a playing card collage, served as
the invitation to a fashion show. Kippenberger
was always interested in various
photographic techniques and media: collage
and photomontage, multiple and overexposures,
manipulated negatives, Polaroid,
and diapositives.
