"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"More Love Hours Than Can Ever Be Repaid" and "The Wages of Sin" (1987)
"I’m more of a Marxist than a symbolist. Always, my interest in popular forms was not to glorify them- because I really dislike popular culture in most cases. I think it’s garbage, but that’s the culture I live in and that’s the culture people speak. I’m an avant-gardist."
