          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
