"Making the course of a motion visible, as a state of liveliness in which man participates in creative repetition, monotony, indeed is an exciting action that can be spiritually perceived like a prayer. My objects are a spatial reality, a zone of light. I use mechanic means to overcome subjective gestures, to render objectivity, to create a situation of freedom."
Günther Uecker, 1961 quote after: ZERO. Die internationale Kunstbewegung der 50er und 60er Jahre, ex. cat. Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin 1915, S. 488.
