Martin Kippenberger: A Cry For Freedom

Martin Kippenberger: A Cry For Freedom: The exhibition is curated by art historian Dimitris Paleocrassas.
ATHENS  •  Museum of Cycladic Art  •  Ongoing
Entitled A Cry For Freedom, the show presents over 60 works, including paintings, sculptures, hotel drawings and photographs,  by the prolific German artist Martin Kippenberger  (1953  1997). 

Kippenberger sought to attack the limits on freedom for artistic creativity by integrating his life and his artistic practice into a consistent and constant Gesamtkunstwerk (Total Art Work). He followed one Rule: Always Break the Rules! He bravely navigated the uncharted waters of unknown territories of freedom, a dangerous operation for which he paid dearly with his untimely death at the age of 44.

Drawn from the D.Daskalopoulos Collection and the Estate Martin Kippenberger, Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne, the exhibition is curated by art historian Dimitris Paleocrassas.
