This first issue of ADATO Re-Edited is at the same time the first issue for 2021.
This special edition is much more than a very personal best of contributions from the members of the editorial team: in Re-Edited we subject our texts to a public editing process, a commentary by external, invited guests. It is a deep concern of ours not to see our interviews and essays as finished products, but always as a work in progress that experiences a snapshot in print. Seen in this light, the idea of Re-Edited might partially emerge from the desire to revisit a beloved topic and develop it further.
We would like to thank our literary discussion partners Barbara Imhof,
Gray Kochhar-Lindgren and Kristian Faschingeder for their valuable participation in this process.
