by Verlag der Theodor Kramer Gesellschaft
To make poems about exile and resistance known to a wider public, Theodor Kramer Gesellschaft is bringing out a new poetry series called Nadelstiche. The first volumes in the series are by Trude Krakauer and Siglinde Bolbecher.
Siglinde Bolbecher has worked all her life on exile and resistance with meticulous dedication, not only as a researcher but also through poems. In 1993 she met the photographer Hermi Friedmann and the poetess Trude Krakauer in Bogotá, Colombia. They became friends and their work found its way back to Austria.
Dagmar Schwarz will read poems by the two authors, some of which will be put to music by Norma d’Aurora. Lydia Mischkulnig will present the series, and Silvia Belalcázar will talk about the friendship of the three women.
Welcome: Andrea Winklbauer, curator
