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 his residence, the Canadian writer Joseph Boyden will be talking to Dirk Clement. Jim Boyes and Maarten Decombel will provide musical intermezzi.
