Signed copy of one of Martin Kippenberger’s (1953-97) rarer publications; printed in an edition of 500 copies, according to Koch. It contains a series of aphorisms coined by Oehlen (b. 1954) and Kippenberger on problems, printed in parallel English and French. Kippenberger collaborated with Oehlen and his brother Markus (b. 1956) on a number of books, catalogues, and exhibitions. Kippenberger has signed the recto of the first blank leaf: “Kippenberger 86.”
A fine, signed copy.
