‘No, it wasn’t a premiere (…) It was more of a play in several dazzling acts, slapstick theatre in the old tradition, which one mustn’t believe has disappeared. (…) The paying guests were the architects once again, who had dived naively into the proceedings and ended up paying a great deal of money to have the ridiculousness of it all and their own impotence revealed to them. Most of the astonished audience remained silent, there was no applause at all, but who cares?‘ Der Standard, ’Album’, 7.12.2002
