Hans Haacke quotes

approved √ translation √

«The working premise is to think in termns of systems; the production of systems, the interference with the exposure of existing systems.
Such an approach is concerned with the operational structure of organizations, in which transfer of information, energy and/or material occurs. System can be physical, biological or social, they can be man-made, naturally existing or a combination of any of the above. In all cases verifiable processes are referred to.»
