S.R. Once you said, that your only interest or your main interest is the artist and the social dimension of the production...

S.S. Yes, that's definitely my interest, and my personal history goes from the very specific promotional aspect – to use the phrase »promotional aspect» - to a more general, systemic, social aspect. [...] My first projects were very focused on individual artists, then there were more artists like the March show which had 31 artists from all different stripes, we knew the artists... Then I did a project in London at Studio International where I asked eight art critics to select artists; then I did the »Artist Contract«, then I did political fundraising etc ... My personal interest got more and more socialized and more and more social consciousness and things like that... to the final point of just stopping ... or I just changed my interests ...
