The Aestheticized Interview with Regina Hübner

"Art comes out from life and its social role is to be part of life. My genome will continue to exist in my two daughters and I believe, that life on earth will never be extinguished. In my heart I hope to be remembered by the emotions I and my artworks gave and hopefully will continue to give. This provokes a sense of immortality and, of course, I would like to be never forgotten. But only being part of universal life, which annihilates the single individual, guarantees a never ending existence. Not easy to accept".
