Imi Knoebel: “When I was in school for architecture we always talked about dumb design, and the modernist box, and stacking those boxes together to create a space — I always loved that, and it’s part of why I find Imi Knoebel’s work appealing. What dumb design means to me is being able to look at a piece and think, that’s so simple, why didn’t I think of that. It’s these constructions that are so obvious they tend to be overlooked. Ahh, I just want to be an artist.”
