"My problem is not mass, not figure, but space and motion - space and time. I don't want a real space or real motion (mobile), I want to depict motion. I am trying to concretize the unity of space and time."
Norbert Kricke, 1954 (quote after: Künstler Kritisches Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst, Munich 1988, p. 2)
