Martin Kippenberger's "Metro-Net Project" consists of six conceptual subway entrances and ventilating shafts that connect up various places on earth in an imaginary way. Kippenberger constructed three entrances in the series: the first in 1992 in Syros, the second in 1995 in Dawson in northwest Canada, and the third in 1997 in Leipzig. The artist extended his subway net with two further works, an entrance and a ventilating shaft which he conceived as "transportable" elements. The entrance was exhibited in 1997 in Kassel at the documenta X, the ventilating shaft in 1997 at the Sculpture Project in Münster. The series will be completed by a sixth ventilating shaft that Kippenberger originally designed for Tokyo, which will now be erected in the garden of Schindler House in Los Angeles. The shaft "reacts" to visitors by emitting warm compressed air and rattling noises through the gratings in the ground - ostensibly from the subway deep under Kings Road. This book in the Cantz Series is the first documentation of Kippenberger's global metaphoric communications system. The artist: Martin Kippenberger (Dortmund 1953-1997 Vienna). 1972 studied at the Kunsthochschule Hamburg. In 1978 he co-founded the Berlin club "SO 36" and opened "Kippenbergers Büro" with Gisela Capitain. In 1993 he opened his private "Museum of Modern Art Syros". Awarded the Käthe Kollwitz Prize in 1996.
