Conversations with Daniel Baumann and Jutta Koether, accompanied by “reconnaissance photos”.
Two quick conversations to discover everything you ever wanted to know about Kippenberger without being able to ask him: his life, work, primitive scenes, fathers, lovers, his autobiography in a nutshell, his role in society, his friends, partners, students and teaching, his lack of problems with problems, rapport with money, premature wisdom, lethal retorts, creative drive, razor-edged improvisations, impeccable professionalism, international imbroglios, little secrets, great recipes, daily meditations, birthdays, famous intuitions, laudable intentions, the things on his mind, constant moral transparence, his strategy and tactics and vice versa, his innate sense of style, his frightening play on words, infallible pride, sovereign solitude, and unquestionable good humour which always inevitably gave him the last word.
