Zitat des Tages von Martin Kippenberger:
I'm not interested in provoking people, but only in trying to be consoling.
Entertainment is in art like color in pictures.
What I'm working on is for people to be able to say that Kippenberger had this really good mood.
Entertainment and art are not isolated.
My style is where you see the individual and where a personality is communicated through actions, decisions, single objects and facts, where the whole draws together to form a history.
Assuming roles is something that simply won't work for me, since I don't have a style. None at all.
I am not an easel-kisser.
A good artist has less time than ideas.
What people will say about me then - or maybe not say - will be the only thing that finally counts.
I can't cut off an ear everyday. Do the Van Gogh here and the Mozart there. Anyway it's exhausting enough always having to check up on what one is really doing!.
You really can't bring about anything new with art.
