To finish off this collection of dialogues, the reader may imagine a final dialogue between Heinrich von Kleist and Mohamed Atta, between the artist-suicide and the suicide pilot. And try to imagine an understanding as to why and how the impulse to create transgressive art and the impulse to commit violence lie so perilously close to each other.

Keywords: dialogues; Heinrich von Kleist; Mohamed Atta; suicide; transgressive art
