I'll have a good laugh with your confusing self-taunt and your compulsion to compare.

The life-size sculpture 'Martin, ab in die Ecke und schäm Dich' (Martin, Into the Corner, You Should Be Ashamed of Yourself), was created in response to an article in a German art magazine in which Kippenberger was accused of being a drunken cynic with questionable politics. The artist made six versions of the sculpture, each one with a slight variation in treatment or material.

Point Blank Press, agency for immediate language, is a one-man publishing house for uncensored, politically incorrect and other (un)heard statements. Founded sometime around 1998 by Peter Morrens and continuous if urgent, it spreads through analog means: drawings, books, postcards, objects, murals.
