"I believ in angels; in spiritual energy that can't be fathomed in thinking. That's why Leonardo is the most outstanding artist, an engineer who painted angels."
Quote after Anette Kuhn, Heinz Mack, in: Kritisches Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst, p. 3.

Called up: December 11, 2020 - ca. 18.45 h +/- 20 min.
