Contents of Issue No. 38

"Catch-as-catch-can" is the original name for a combat sport that evolved from English folk wrestling in 1870: within a given framework, all holds and tricks are permitted. It was texts submitted by authors on art, fun with analogy and wordplay, and perhaps a fascination with a quadruple open "a" that led to the title of the 38th edition of anders: "Hard As Art Can".

Art is the sharpened reflection of the struggle of life in a frame. Wilhelm Salber understood it as a transitional area that grows out of everyday life, whose "hard" construction problems can be experienced through processes of action, and in this way has an effect on the treatment of the all-day. Art does not take place in a "sanctuary", cannot be described as "fantasy". Art is closer to the banal questions of life than the forms of its presentation often suggest.
