This exhibition focused on Kippenberger’s METRO-Net series, which included six conceptual sculptures that, as a group, establish a far-flung metaphorical subway system from the Greek island of Syros, to several sites in Germany; Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada; and West Hollywood, at the Schindler House.

Touch Down in the Land of Superheroes, Illustrated, October 9, 1998. To celebrate the publication of Martin Kippenberger: The Last Stop West, German art historian Roberto Ohrt addressed the filmic aspects of Kippenberger’s METRO-Net series – a metaphoric subway “system” fleshed out with “entrances,” “exits,” and “ventilators” in odd corners of the world. His lecture was preceded by a screening of Buster Keaton’s 1922 silent film The Frozen North, and followed by a discussion artist and professor Stephen Prina, whose interpretive essay formed the core of the exhibition catalogue.
