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.
