Catalogue Note

"Simply to hang a painting on the wall and say that it’s art is dreadful. The whole network is important! When you say art, then everything possible belongs to it. In a gallery there is also the floor, the architecture, the colour of the walls."
Martin Kippenberger
in conversation with Jutta Koether, 'One has to be able to take it!', in: Exh. Cat., Los Angeles, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective, 2008, p. 316
