The second of Kippenberger’s hotel drawings. “From 1987 onwards Martin Kippenberger, constantly travelling and staying in hotels, made many drawings on hotel stationery. The result is a kind of autobiography documenting his ideas, plans and concepts for works, studies for installations, portraits, sketches and autonomous drawings. The hotel’s letterhead is often integrated into the drawing or provides the point of departure for the drawing. In order to emphasise the inherent character of the stationery, different types of paper are used in the printing of this book.”
