Lot Essay

‘What we do as artists is not to dissect; we do the assembling. So I just think: ‘I make this; that’s what I do’. I don’t have to justify anything to anybody because when you do that, when you want those kinds of answers as somebody looking at art, you don’t get shit out of it. You don’t enjoy the stuff you see. The advantage of art is that it just does what it does’

(U. Fischer, quoted in J. Griffin ‘Urs Fischer: The reluctant interviewee’, in The Art Newspaper, issue 234, April 2012).
