In his youth, J rg Immendorff was an assistant at Joseph Beuys's legendary performance How to Explain Pictures to a Dead Hare. As he describes here in an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist, when Beuys complied with his dealer's request to rearrange the stage for commercial reasons ('I need the stuff we can sell at the front.'), Immendorff stuck a red dot on Beuys's vest, the international sign that a work has sold, and in this case the scarlet letter of the sellout. Immendorff remains as politically and personally engaged today. Male Lago, a gigantic scrapbook and portfolio almost three-and-a-half inches thick and weighing in at 880 pages, tracks his work from its earliest and most political days through to his recent paintings and quietly wry brass monkeys.

About the Author:

Jorg Immendorff was born in 1945 in Bleckede, Germany. As a young man, he studied stagecraft and stage design in Dusseldorf before moving on to study art under the tutelage of Joseph Beuys in 1964. The mid-60s were a time of great social crisis in Germany, and Immendorff responded by creating his seminal first body of work, the politically charged "LIDL," the sound of which was meant to evoke that of a baby's rattle, and thus to ridicule the idea of the precious aesthetic object and elitist art traditions. In future works, Immendorff continued to subvert and skewer his countryis politics, art and the world in general. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, Asia and the United States, including recent solo exhibitions at Anton Kern Gallery and Michael Werner Gallery in New York and Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia.
