E.K.: I am just an artist and a poet. Those are the two artforms that I pursue. My claims are very specific. I have for 30 years developed a body of work in the realm of experimental poetry and art. Those two interests of mine, very much inflected by philosophical inquiry, have sometimes crossed over from one to the other. Any nomenclature that begins with post has a previous form or period for reference. It is not my case. I wish to forge a new reality. Bio art is not post-anything, it inaugurates its own logic. I am not interested in explaining the world; I am interested in creating a new one.

T.H.: That sounds like a great last word, thank you for the insights into your aesthetics. We are very much looking forward to your future artworks. It would be a pleasure to welcome you at the NCCR eikones in Basel.
