Michael Krebber
Zeichnungen

Beautiful and very scarce early Michael Krebber catalogue, published on the occasion of his solo exhibition at Galerie Gisela Capitain in Cologne, October – November, 1992.

Containing no text (beyond the title page), this catalogue reproduces a series of Krebber’s drawings from this period in colour and black and white.

Michael Krebber (born 1954, lives and works in Cologne) is currently considered to be one of the most emblematic personalities of the international contemporary art scene. Having had a major influence on the art scene in Cologne during the 80’s and 90’s and ever since, Michael Krebber has a conceptual approach to painting that he explores beyond all pictorial conventions. His practice is marked by ambivalence, subversion, intransigence, and a feigned body language. Krebber is a dandy painter.
Although he appears to be a discreet character, both perplexed and ambivalent about the very nature of his practice, he nevertheless remains an influential first-class smuggler into the world of art on both the theoretical and economic levels. The dialogue that he maintains with his students at the Staatliche Hochschule in Frankfurt, sets him up as a “literary character,” the implementer of his very own process, which has fascinated the emerging generation.

* Condition: Very Good-Fine – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Michael Krebber
Alien Hybrid Creatures



As new copy of the out-of-print and fantastic 2005 artist book Alien Hybrid Creatures by German painter Michael Krebber.

Alien Hybrid Creatures addresses, amongst other things, the historical figure of the dandy–and among the dandies implicated is the spawning sea anemone on the cover. It functions as a reading list for the Seminar “Dandyism I/II (Düsseldorf Academy of Art) 2001/2002, with additional material from Krebber’s seminar “Geniuses and Dandies/Historical and Theoretical Reflections” 2001. Such material includes the work of Joris-Karl Huysmans, Bernhard Willhelm, Robert Bresson, Kai Althoff, Charles Baudelaire, Odilion Redon, Merlin Carpenter, Devince, Josephine Pryde, Kenneth Anger, Albert Camus, Cosmia Von Bonin, Jack Smith, John Waters, Susan Sontag, Russ Meyers, Marcel Broodthaers, and French & Saunders (amongst many more).

Alien Hybrid Creatures was published on the occasion of Michael Krebber’s legendary lecture “Puberty in Painting”, delivered in the context of Renate Goldmann’s seminar at the Institute of Art History at the University of Cologne in 2003.

Essay by Oswald Wiener.
Designed by Markus Ziegler in cooperation with Yvonne Quirmbach.

Now a very scarce collector’s item.
