Very rare three-part publication by Martin Kippenberger (1953-97) memorializing his extensive travels around Brazil in 1985-86. Each was printed in an edition of approximately 600 copies, according to Koch. Among North American institutions, we found just three libraries with the complete three-volume set.

I: “In the series Endlich 1-3 [Finally 1-3] (published to accompany the exhibition Gib mir das Sommerloch [Give me the Silly Season] from 8 June to 4 July 1986 at the Galerie Erhard Klein in Bonn), Kippenberger published ‘the spoils’ of his journey to Brazil under the title ‘The Magical Misery Tour. Brazil December 15, 1985-March 12, 1986.’ Editing and design of the three booklets was done by Detlev Gretenkort. Apart from seven on-location photographs, Endlich 1 [Finally 1] contains the results of 224 games of Mau-Mau played in Brazil between 14 February and 1 March 1986.”–Koch, p. 113.

II: “Endlich 2 [Finally 2] contains reproductions of 34 photographs taken in Brazil between 15 December 1985 and 28 January 1986.”–Koch, p. 115.

III: “Endlich 3 [Finally 3] contains illustrations of two editions (‘Copa und Ipa’ [Copa and Ipa] and ‘Young Beach Believers’), the series of images ‘Vorfreude seitenverkehrt: Ich muß zuhause bleiben’ [Anticipation of pleasure reversed: I have to stay at home] and illustrations of two hats created in Brazil. A text co-authored with Albert Oehlen relates how the hats were made at a New Year’s Eve party in Rio…”–Koch, p. 116.

In excellent condition. Our copy of Endlich 1 lacks the printed book-band shown in the catalogue raisonné.
