“In A Qu*A*re Time And Space”

"At se og høre Stüttgen udlægge den afroamerikanske kulturs udvikling som queer-bevidsthed fra instruktøren D. W. Griffiths racistiske film-epos The Birth of a Nation (1915) op til orkesterleder Sun Ras afro-futuristiske vision havde mere karakter af at overvære en performance, hvor kritisk tænkning blev brugt til at forbinde politik, musik, film, mytologier og teori i et vidtstrakt netværk af energi. Fuld af nerve og kraft. "    ( fra Lillemoses artikel på Kunstkritikk)
