I want to create the greatest celebration of humanity, where everything is contained, from the greatest jubilation and the most extreme ecstasy of happiness to the contemplation of suffering and death. With my art I want to pay homage to existence and being, but not to depict something. (Herrmann Nitsch)

The conversation between Hermann Nitsch and Otmar Rychlik was held in July 1995.
