    History is really a dangerous feld to go digging in. But when you do have an idea, then it’s very useful – to go get information or to revise your work, or to revitalize you. If you look at the hundreds of heads in the Capitoline Museum [in Rome] they are incredible. Just to look with fresh eyes, as if they were done today, not with the tunnel of art history.

    (Thomas Schütte quoted in J. Lingwood, Interview with Thomas Schütte, London, 1997).
