In 1976, in the studio of the Berlin fashion designer Claudia Skoda, Martin Kippenberger created a floor collage from 1,300 photographs.
The collage served as a catwalk for fashion shows with a performance character; it is a kaleidoscope of life and work in the apartment Skoda shared with various artists, where Kippenberger himself lived for some time. Shortly before the demolition of the Berlin-Kreuzberg building in 2003, the work was rediscovered, salvaged, and restored. It now belongs to the HGN collection. This conceptual project, involving a natural alliance between fashion, art, music, and punk, already allows a view into Kippenberger’s later pictorial cosmos of social interconnection.
