"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."
"[The building's surface is] a very important protective layer that separates the overly confessional aspect of the speech of those who animate the building and our overly empathetic approach towards the speakers. So that creates a distance which is important for thinking- for recognizing that between them and us there is a wall. Any attempt to identify with the person is a danger. To say, 'I understand what you went through,' is the most unacceptable response. The opposite may be more appropriate. 'I will never understand what you went through.'"
