This book explores themes that both artists shared in common, such as loss, reflection on personal experience in art and the portrait as a genre. Besides illustrating these themes, the exhibition also includes a selection of works from Kippenberger’s series The Raft of the Medusa (1996), in which the German artist takes the concept of the self-portrait as tragic representation of one’s own life to extremes.
