Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective

Green Dragon Office, Los Angeles, California, 2008

Description

The publication of Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective was designed to accompany the first major retrospective displayed in the United States. Kippenberger (1953-97) is regarded as one of the most relevant and prominent artists of our time. With a rich and distinctive body of work from the mid-70s, the catalogue presents a comprehensive insight into the artist’s expansive 20-year career, documenting Kippenberger's extraordinary twenty-year career with works in many media--paintings, sculptures, works on paper, installations, photographs, collaborations with other artists, posters, and postcards. 

Juror Notes

The strength of this book is in the nuanced typographic solutions. The designers found some way to present an artist’s world with thoughtful pacing and just a touch of irreverence, just like Martin Kippenberger.
