Hundertwasser's comment on the work

A painted poem on window rights - and the windows' right to independence; windows protect windows - windows live in windows beneath keystones. Hot-water-bottle windows have become independent; they are not subject to the dictates of window-sameness, window apartheid and window racial segregation - liberated windows. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 594)
