Martin Kippenberger's The Happy End of Franz Kafka's "Amerika" stages the scenario of America as the land of the job interview. In the spirit of this work, tonight's program takes the shape of a series of interviews between artists, art dealers, and friends of Kippenberger's. Together they help to form a collective portrait of this complicated figure. Participants include artists Rachel Harrison and Jeff Koons, art dealer Friedrich Petzel, critic and art historian Jan Avgikos, and others.
In conjunction with the exhibition Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective
Tickets ($10; members $8; students, seniors, and staff of other museums $5) can be purchased online, or at the lobby information desk and the Film desk.
