Dan Flavin: Situations

Saw the exhibit (in January) at Vienna's Mumok of US artist Dan Flavin "Lights". Steve Morse, who had managed Dan Flavin's studio over a period of five years and is still in charge of the presentations of Flavin's fluorescent tubes in an interview with the Austrian daily "DerStandard" titled "He was so polite as to accept compliments":
People would ask Dan Flavin: "Do you do sculptures"? "No". "Do you do lightart"? "No". "Do you do environments"? "No". "So what are you doing?" "I'm creating situations".
Powerful situations. And demanding ones.
