Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables Ocula Conversation Wong Ping: Hong Kong Fables

Or their dark narratives that resonate with the deepest recesses of the human psyche? They have been included in an impressive repertoire of group exhibitions in recent years, including One Hand Clapping at...

Martin Kippenberger

(1953 - 1997), Germany

Highly prolific during his career, Martin Kippenberger remains one of the most influential German artists of his the post war era. Alongside Albert Oehlen, Dieter Göls and Günther Förg, Kippenberger refused to adhere to any specific medium, working across sculpture, painting, photography and installation. His humourous works were not without serious political intent, which later had him accused of neo-Nazism. Confronting art at the turn of the millenium, Kippenberger calls into question the possibility of artistic authenticity and originality. His works reflect the discontent of German youth of the 70s with leftists politics whilst remaining critical of the expanding influence of consumer culture over West Germany. 

His experimental practice ranged between Polke-esque abstraction and photorealism, yet behind the farce often contained a critical analysis of the institution of art and society. Recently a retrospective of his work was held at MoMA. His work is also held in public collections around the world.

Berlin, Boners and Brecht Ocula Report Berlin, Boners and Brecht 7 Jun 2016 : Diana d'Arenberg for Ocula

Apparently my timing sucks. One week too late for Berlin Gallery Weekend, and one month too early for the Berlin Biennale. ‘You should have been here last weekend for Berlin Gallery Weekend!’ a Berliner friend exclaimed. ‘Everyone was having orgies at Soho House! It was the best art world networking!’ I shifted...
