            Editors: David Peleman, Jantje Engels, Christophe Van Gerrewey

            “It is brilliant people say brilliant
            while it’s mere dilettantism
            What they touch becomes tasteless
            always the most obvious
            superficialities
            even the most exalted starts to stink”
            — Thomas Bernhard, Der Schein trügt, 1984
