‘En cas de réclamation les sentiments vous serons remboursés [In Case of Complaint, Your Feelings Will Be Reimbursed] is a catalogue raisonné of cards from 1978 to 1989 published according to Kippenberger’s concept and design to accompany the exhibition of the same name at the Halle Sud in Geneva from 24 September to 29 October 1989.
A text entitled “Kippenberger, verstehen!” [Understanding Kippenberger!] by Jutta Koether runs throughout the book in small portions, in German and French.
Kippenberger’s design is based on the catalogue ‘Meisterwerke des Museums São Paulo’ [Masterpieces from the São Paulo Museum] issued by the Berner Kunstmuseum in 1954.
In the year 2000, a second volume of the catalogue raisonné was published posthumously by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther Koenig in Cologne, containing the cards created since 1989.
