D'une lecture du monde...

The viewer has lost the child like ability to look at the back of the picture and be surprised about the fact that there is nothing to see.

Detlef Blümler 1989. Translated by e_CR editors

Dem Betrachter des Bildes ist die Fähigkeit des Kindes abhanden gekommen, auf die Rückseite zu schauen und sich zu wundern, daß es da nichts zu sehen gibt.

Detlef Blümler 1989
