Martin Kippenberger Exhibition at the Museum of Cycladic Art


Visit the contemporary art exhibition titled A Cry For Freedom by the prolific German artist Martin Kippenberger which takes place at the Museum of Cycladic Art until January 26, 2014.

The show A Cry For Freedom presents over 60 works including paintings, sculptures, hotel drawings and photographs from the D. Daskalopoulos Collection and the Estate Martin Kippenberger, Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne. The exhibition is curated by Dimitris Paleocrassas, Art Historian.

The History of Art may be viewed as a sequential broadening of the boundaries of what constitutes a work of art towards a greater degree of freedom for artistic creativity. Martin Kippenberger mounted an extraordinarily fierce and comprehensive attack on those limits. Its power was magnified by his methodical and innate urge to express his own yearning for personal freedom into his artistic creativity, thereby 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.

Sixty years after his birth, this exhibition attempts to trace his path and tell the story of a man dedicated to the pursuit of freedom against all the restraints of orthodoxy and to elucidate the multifaceted ways by which he always (ground) broke the rules.

The exhibition is initiated and funded by NEON.
