"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"The pictures of the reenactors shy away from some of the more subversive scenes that they performed- whether taking prisoners or their rough handling of the other camp. I didn’t find it fruitful to dwell on that or try to replicate some of the horrific moments that happened during the Vietnam War. I stayed away from that, and obviously that comes from my personal background."
