‘Kippenbergerweg’ [Kippenberger Way] is a catalogue raisonné of Martin Kippenberger’s posters up to 1983. The cover design and format is based on Stanley Brouwn’s design for the books in the ‘Zeichnungen [Drawings] series published by Verlag Gebr. König in Cologne/New York.
The dates of the drawings entitled ‘This Way Brouwn’ are given as “25-2-61” and “26-2-61,” and Kippenberger has replaced these dates with his own date of birth “25-2-53.”
In 1998 a revised and extended re-edition of the book was published posthumously, including all the posters up to 1997.
