I think in this age of internet and of so much information, I don’t think it is proper anymore to have this, you know, “all rights are yours“ situation. I don’t think it works anymore .For example, with the Paper Surgery project, it is actually kind of even anecdotal how this happened, we were sitting –me and Stephen– and our second daughter was playing and we just gave her this magazine pages and she did this! And we were both just sitting there and we started to think about this idea so basically you could say SHE is the author of this whole series because this is how we got the idea. So it is so much influences now, so much stuff around us. So I don’t think it is… the author whose name is underneath, who signed it and that’s it. And I think you know, like a year ago when Richard Prince won this very big court case for the authorship for the image he used and I think it is very right that he won it. You can’t say you know, oh this is mine but you just changed it a little. That is ok, that is how we live our life now.
Um, I don’t see myself as a position somewhere. I just want to do stuff, want to have fun and I don’t think it’s a measure. A position will come, it’s not something you are offering to the art society I think it’s something that the art society offers you, and you can take it or not take it … you can play this game or not play this game. It’s really not a question everybody should ask themselves and look less at their position because a lot of artists looks just at their positions they are taking and not what is coming from the art I think that is really the biggest mistake of the art world right now. They are giving a lot of attention to people who can position themselves and that is not a talent. I mean, it is a talent but it is not all that talent should be when you are thinking about who is a good artist and who is not.
Of course art it has a connection with which art it is and I think, who the artist is, is something else, some other point of view. That is what it is. It is all about different perspectives, different feelings that I would not find on my own that is what art is about. You know, anything. Movies, literature, visual art, anybody who will shake me I will call an artist.
