PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE EUROPEAN COLLECTION
Kippenberger illustrates an example of letting work tell you what its about rather than the other way around, while at the same time being fully committed to everything you release. He showed me that redundancy can be an image, or an object, or an ideologys most useful quality (...) he showed that being socially committed does not necessarily mean that you have to feel smug or like a good guy. He shows that letting dissidence have dissonance is as powerful as anything overtly political.
