"I think a white world is a more humane world [..]. These white structures can be a spiritual language which makes us meditate. The state white can be perceived as a prayer, its articulation of a spiritual event. The existence in white strongly differs from darkness [..], a drama of sorrow, where all deliverance is projected to the afterworld."
Quote from: Mack - Piene - Uecker, published by Kestner-Gesellschaft Hanover, with contributions from Wieland Schmied, Günther Uecker et al, Hanover 1965, no.p.
