So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye…

Rats, cannibals, dismembered arms and overflowing human organs. Oddly, I’m not referring to a regular Saturday night at Hannibal Lectors. Over the last four months, while many enjoyed the sunny weather, the warm beaches and the amazing summer festivals, students and alumni from across 9 different disciplines at VFS came together to bring to life the twisted genius of H.P [...]
