Assuming roles is something that simply won't work for me, since I don't have a style. None at all.— Martin Kippenberger
The most almighty Martin Kippenberger quotes that are easy to memorize and remember
I am a travelling salesman. I deal in ideas.
I'm not interested in provoking people, but only in trying to be consoling.
What I'm working on is for people to be able to say that Kippenberger had this really good mood.
Entertainment and art are not isolated.
You don't make stupid jokes in art.
I can't cut off an ear everyday. Do the Van Gogh here and the Mozart there. Anyway it's exhausting enough always having to check up on what one is really doing!.
You really can't bring about anything new with art.
A good artist has less time than ideas.
What people will say about me then - or maybe not say - will be the only thing that finally counts.
I am rather like a travelling salesman.
I deal in ideas. I do much more for people than just paint them pictures.
Entertainment and art are not isolated. Entertainment is in art like color in pictures.
Nobody helps anybody.
An artist who opposes himself still has the best chances to reach some result.
Entertainment is in art like color in pictures.
My style is where you see the individual and where a personality is communicated through actions, decisions, single objects and facts, where the whole draws together to form a history.
