“I am offering this printed matter tonight to those attending the concert organized by Frans de Jong and Henk de Hoog. I describe what I believe is art and practicing art.”
“I wrote this piece several months ago out of a need to put into words my inner feelings about art and being an artist. It describes in a broad sense the interaction between art and life. I then printed that paper and sent it to a number of people. Frans de Jong suggested publishing it again on behalf of this evening. He himself made this second edition in his printing house.” Louwrien Wijers, 14 April 1972
