G2, Arts, the guardian, Monday.

I will not measure Tacita Dean’s article on JG Ballard because it’s more a story about their relationship.

Read Germaine Greer’s comment piece.

She talks about Kippenberger and his and other people’s obsession with him: “The exhibition, which has raised the status of Kippenberger like no other before it, was curated by two women, Ann Goldstein and Ann Temkin. Kippenberger had four sisters, his principal gallerist was a woman, and his only child was a daughter. Not one of them made an impact on his art. Here was the Frida Kahlo of maleness, pushing that maleness in my face, insistent, relentless, implacable. The full gamut of sexual references was there, all the projections, all the holes, and all male.”
