            Editors: David Peleman, Jantje Engels, Christophe Van Gerrewey

            “It is brilliant people say brilliant
            while it’s mere dilettantism

            always the most obvious
            even the most exalted starts to stink”
            — Thomas Bernhard, Der Schein trügt, 1984
