Kippi by Itty 

'Wenn's anfängt, durch die Decke zu tropfen'

Martin Kippenberger, 1987
Installation (Holz, Plastik, Farbe)
Die Installation von Martin Kippenberger wurde am 20.10.2011im Dortmunder Museum Ostwall zerstört, als der weisse Ablagerungsrand in der schwarzen Plastikwanne von einer Putzfrau entfernt wurde.
'Berliner Betrüger' fragen:
Wo fängt Kunst an oder hört sie auf?
Ist das Original oder Fälschung?
Ist das Kunst oder kann das weg?

'Dialog mit der Jugend’

Martin Kippenberger, 1981/82
Acryl auf Holz 59x60
Martin Kippenberger war Geschäftsführer des SO36, aber das machte ihn noch lange nicht zum Punk, dachten die kleinen Punks.
Auch Itty fühlt sich durchaus beiden Seiten verbunden.
----------------------------------------------------
 ""Who still believes in the original?"" Berlin "con artists" will fake important works of art which we will present and subsequently auction off in an exclusive exhibition / auction event.

In an exhibition that will finish after only 28.800 seconds, artists from Berlin will show their versions of famous art objects which will then be flogged to the highest bidder. All proceeds of the auction go towards organising a festival installation (or is it an installation festival?) named You Are Here aka The Maze (scheduled to take place in September 2012) and to the artists involved in the auction.

Ok, one more time: The fake is to serve the original! We're auctioning fake originals (or is it original fakes?) to raise funds for an arts event full of original art objects, namely the festillation instaval You Are Here aka The Maze which will take place in September. So you might say we believe in the original and the fake in equal measure, though it seems likely that this evenly distributed belief denies the original its originality, or value! therefore: ""Who still believes in the original?"" when I can get a better fake.

Participating artists:

Jim Avignon, Diego Castro, Mett Eagle, Stefan Fähler, Chrigel Farner, Martina Hoffmann, Claudia Immig, Marion Jdanoff, Felix-Florian Toedtloff, Kristof Maria Künnsler, Stephan Laackman, Itty Minchesta (AtomicTitCorportation), Katharina Nesterova, Anne Paschvoß, Stephanie Piehl, Maximilian Rödel, Lisa Tiemann and Wilmar
