In 2015, citybooks takes time to reflect on the gruesome jubilee of the first large-scale gas attack in history. We'll be asking pertinent questions on the relationship between science and war, about both the historical modern day cult of commemoration and about the, albeit innocent, landscape as theatre of war. During her residence, the Flemish writer Catherine Vuylsteke will be talking to Dirk Clement during a literary evening with musical intermezzi.
