I’m only working with pictures. I find them, and I present them, that’s enough for me.
Appropriation is a stupid name. But, to steal is okay. If I discover something in art that I really like, I take it. I don’t care. On the other hand, it’s very important that you find your own way with these things.
The significance of a given image can be decided only in a borderline situation.
I can’t stand making art all the time. You can’t make love all the time either, or eat all day long. I have never wanted to be a professional artist, with an office, and lots of assistants. I don’t want to run it like a real business. You simply loose the overview, and become distanced to your own work. I like to have my stuff hanging on the wall for weeks. Some of it proves worth saving, the rest is trash.” —Hans-Peter Feldmann, the inventor of Tumblr
