Barbara Kruger

  • I shop therefore I am.

  • If you're so successful, why do you feel like a fake?

  • It's a small world, but not if you have to clean it.

  • Love is something you fall into.

  • When I hear the word culture I take out my checkbook.

  • You make history when you do business.

  • Do I have to give up me to be loved by you?

  • I think architecture is one of the predominant orderings of social space. It can construct and contain our experiences. It defines our days and nights. It literally puts us in our place.

  • ... the art world has always been an unrelenting taste machine, but now flavors of the month have morphed into flavors of the minute. Again, all a reflection of a wider cultural condition. I mean, the art world is slow compared with the music and movie businesses.

  • It's really hard for me to use the term 'history' in the singular, because it suggests a reductivist view of how moments and events congeal and reflect the passage of time. I'd rather stick to the pluralness of 'histories' in order to suggest the simultaneity, the parallel forces at work, which produce lived experience.

  • Fashion is everywhere and about everything. It is folly, vanity and the fun of it all. It is disguise, innuendo, and cunning. It is mean, gorgeous and ambitious, and definitely the last word for the next few seconds.

Barbara Kruger, U.S. conceptual artist

(1945)
