    Pre-Lot Text

    I wished to go completely outside and to make a symbolic start for my enterprise of regenerating the life of humankind within the body of society and to prepare a positive future in this context.
    Joseph Beuys
    People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly.
    Andy Warhol
