Gundlach, Kunstverein Hamburg 1989Dimensions of the box: 42 x 32 x 35 cmVery good conditionA typical assemblage of the artist with enigmatic content, as indicated in the title of work. Similar objects have been sold for around €24,000 in the auction marketThe assemblage is a recurring technique in the work of Martin Kippenberger (1953-1997), who was looking for a permanent extension of artistic media. In so doing, the artist raised repeatedly the question of originality and authenticity of an artwork, referring to methods of appropriation art, collaboration and delegation. Kippenberger's works are complex and often deliberately impenetrable. They indicate, however, numerous references to popular culture, politics, history, literature and the artist’s autobiography.Object is regular taxed. 19% VAT is added to the purchase price for deliveries within the EU.Estimate by Auctionata Expert: 24,000 EuroCondition:The work is in a very good condition with only minor scratches to the object box. The dimensions are 42 x 32 x 35 cm.Martin Kippenberger (1953-1997)Martin Kippenberger’s work is characterized by his provocative personality and his extreme positions in diverse styles and media. Kippenberger was named the enfant terrible of his generation. He graduated from The University of Fine Arts of Hamburg, where he was inspired amongst others by Sigmar Polke. Kippenberger’s refusal to adapt to a specific style resulted in an extremely prolific and diverse work, which includes sculptures, paintings, works on paper, photographs, installations and prints. Kippenberger’s art work was honored already during his lifetime with exhibitions in international museums. Today, many of his works are on display in important museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Tate Gallery in London.
