In Paule Hammer’s memories of his childhood the »Kaputtnik« emerges for the first time as dysfunctional but vigorous character. In 2019 Hammer’s idee of this character is taking shape at Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig – in the form of a childlike predator with a human head bearing the features of legendary German actor Klaus Kinski. This is where the adventurous journey of Paule Hammer and his guests begins. In search of meaning and absurdity they invite the audience to explore worlds of human experiences. The catalogue documents the genesis and development of the »Kaputtnik« in encounters, talks, and dreams.
