There have been many pivotal moments in history, early mans harnessing of fire, the discovery of penicillin and the invention of the burger.

Created around the year AD907by the Mongolians, the burger took its earliest form as a lamb or mutton patty (tenderised under the saddle and eaten on horseback). The history of the burger and its influence on society has since been prolific and now twenty two artists celebrate this monumental yet misunderstood icon.

Martin Kippenburger with Fries and a Shake promises a visual feast. The burger - its antecedents and its influences in glorious technicolour and presented in a multitude of shapes and form.

Sullied in the recent past by the likes of Morgan "I like to overeat" Spurlock and Dr Gillian "may not be qualified" McKeith, Martin Kippenburger with Fries and a Shake will rejuvenate the love of burgers whilst nourishing your senses.
