Pharmaceutical Candy

Valium, Prozac, Placebo, Viagra, Candy: can you say which one doesn't belong? Or, to rephrase the question: can you say exactly where the boundary lies between medicine and entertainment? It is difficult to judge: both aim to increase quality of life. But what that means is arguably a matter of taste.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
