“We need many more such people who strike out on new ways of thinking” says editor-in-chief Gabriele Fischer in her introduction.

It’s about the origins of the MINDKISS Project and its sources of inspiration. It’s about love, art and death. And it’s about “originality” which is the special theme of this January edition.

Such freedom is the essential condition that first makes possible work of such quality.

Also highly recommended is the introduction to the special issue on originality in which Wolf Lotter examines and demolishes established and degenerate notions of what originality is, what it means and what value it has. A refreshing “original” piece of writing!
