"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."
"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
