"What I find so special about painting is the fact that everything is superimposed on the surface and that it becomes visible all at once, meaning you see a sort of time cluster. You see the things you did on the surface first and those you did last simultaneously. Nothing happens sequentially, and that is so unique."
Katharina Grosse, quote from: 3sat Pressetreff online, October 13, 2020.
