"The Answers is the follow-up publication of “Experiment with Dreams“ project, in which the artists will present the letters of reply they received. This collection of ”personal and indignant” replies from people in positions of power and influence should prove to be as intriguing, amusing and unsettling as the initial letters.“

”In the course of earlier historical events the center of the market and commerce was symbolized by the town square, and power was symbolized by the church. Today these determining ideas are part of a global economic system, abstract and incomprehensible to the individual. But they are still cruelly present in our everyday affairs. They are in the images of TV’s hallucinatory eye, in war, in blood and money as well as in white laundry, in our food and unemployment. With insight into the frighteningly unjust distribution of human opportunities that continue to occur on earth, despite seeming hopelessness, the potential also exists to turn disadvantage into its opposite. We are all born like Jesus Christ.”
