Joachim Kupke is a representative of the so-called Appropriation Art, which is dedicated to the appropriation and mixing of found aesthetic content. He stimulates the viewer, not without wit, to question his own time: originality and identity are relativized like history. Using the means of art, he explores the limits and possibilities of plagiarism and parody, adaptation and allusion - art, according to Kupke, does not come from skill, but from art, loosely based on Marcel Duchamp, in whose tradition he sees artistic appropriation. So it is not surprising when he confronts a "shepherd scene" by Abraham Bloemaert (1627) with the subheading "Show your wound"-no one who thinks Joseph Beuys. In a dislike admiration for the genial self-stylizer, Kupke throws his concept of art back on the idyll.
