"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"One very important element is the economy of means. I strongly believe in the power of a single idea. So the most difficult thing for me and, I think, for most artists is to clean up- to arrive at the essence. Most artworks today try to say thirty-seven things at the same time. I try exactly the contrary. When you reach that essential idea, it’s extraordinary."
- Alfredo Jaar
