"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."
"You grow up with this idealistic idea of wanting to change the world, realizing later on that artworks that look too much like propaganda scare people and people just become defensive. So I realized that the strategy would have to change."
