“In retrospect it seems to me that the curiosity for unfiltered, uncensored information about artistic processes behind the narrow borders of the GDR and the lust for the exchange of thoughts were the main motives. But of course it has also been the fun of doing it yourself, the craftsmanship, the material, the experiment.” (to Franziska Block)
