Prolific German artist Martin Kippenberger made his own exhibition posters, which are perhaps more beautiful than the rest of his work. I could easily fill a wall with these. On looking for a collection of the posters in book form, I found Martin Kippenberger: The Complete Posters, but it was published in 1998 and is therefore annoyingly out of print. In 2007 Dickinson Gallery published a book of Kippenberger's exhibition posters and invitations but that seems to be unavailable as well. Posters aside, a wall of his other, and very eclectic, work resembles a wall of strange and bad artwork in a cafe, but that is most certainly part of it's charm. All of it is currently filed under WANT.
