"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"It was more than a little intimidating to work in the Mies van der Rohe building in Berlin because it is a perfect building. That’s what stymied me for a while. It didn’t need or want any art, and I didn’t want to spoil it in any way. One doesn’t want to make an imperfect mess in a masterpiece."
- Jenny Holzer
