    ‘When I first combined two reproductions to make one, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My mind seemed to explode at the multiple variations that appeared beneath my hands. From that time on I became penetrable, and so did the whole world. A non-illusory space could be produced and analogy could be pointed out with a finger’ Arturo Schwarz, Jirí Kolár: L’Arte come forma della libertà. L’Art comme forme de la liberté. Art as the Form of Freedom, exh. cat., Galleria Schwarz, Milan 1972, pp.84–108.
