Hans Hillmann on his work

“I do like to talk about my work, or, to be more specific, about the process of working, which I think is much more satisfying than the completed thing, probably because everything is still undecided, one has the chance to do something that comes as a surprise to oneself. There is a saying: the more one knows about another person the more difficult it becomes to surprise him (or her). If that is true for oneself, I can only hope my relations to myself remain at a certain distance.”
