Curators at Bolzano museum of modern art Museion said that Kippenberger’s work was a self-portrait of the artist ‘in a state of profound crisis’, but their explanation has been given short shrift by local bishop Wilhelm Egger. ‘The crucified frog has shocked many visitors to the Museion and has hurt their religious feelings,’ Egger said.
