"We don't want to make pleasant pictures that adorn the walls of the overfed, so that they can enjoy their sweet midday nap. And we don't make pictures that help the hungry ones to forget about their hunger. Neither do we want to make pictures of a world in which all is good and nice." (Heinrich Hoerle)
