The only solution in the end was this: To hand in a one-page document with only this sentence: “There will be no critical reflection”. It is a little childish, but it is the Truth (both in a factual and artistic sense). Art should seek Truth. This solution is what I have decided upon. The pages 2 to 87324 should be considered as the footnote to this sentence, which is put on page 1. It is a little like John Cage had written a five movement romantic symphony as a footnote to 4’33, which we should be happy he didn’t do.
