Phillip Peters on the work of Roos Hoffmann:

“How can we relate to the given context, whether urban or natural-organic? The work is in fact about the question that is always recurring in art; who am I, what is my position, how do I discover and formulate my place in this world?” [1]

“The work of Roos Hoffmann offers a simple and modest possibility to (re-)realize your own place and therefore your own identity in this complex world” [2]

[1] “Hoe willen en kunnen we ons verhouden met de aangeboden orde, of die nu stedelijk of organisch-natuurlijk is? Dan gaat het werk in feite over de eeuwige vraag die kunst altijd weer in de meest verschillende gedaantes stelt: wie ben ik, wat is mijn positie, hoe ontdek en formuleer ik mijn plek in de wereld?” p.8 * Phillip Peters: Roos Hoffmann, Performances: Existentiële choreografieën. 2012

[2] Roos Hoffmanns werk biedt op een in wezen eenvoudige en bescheiden manier mogelijkheden tot het (her)overwegen van de eigen positie en daarmee de eigen identiteit in een steeds complexere wereld. p.23 * Phillip Peters: Roos Hoffmann, Performances: Existentiële choreografieën. 2012
