The bonds between the literary communities of Austria and the UK were forged deeply in the shadow of WWII but existed, palpably, in the years before and after. Many of Austria’s most considerable and original authors choose the UK as their new home throughout the last century and this event celebrates those writers. Seven contemporary artists will be asked to respond to the lives and works of :

Stella Rotenberg (1916-2013) celebrated by Bettina Fung
Erich Fried (1921-1988) celebrated by Dominic Jaeckle
Mela Hartwig (1893 – 1967) celebrated by Andrea Capovilla
Franz Baermann Steiner (1909-1952) celebrated by SJ Fowler
Theodor Kramer (1897-1958) celebrated by Oliver Goldstein
HG Adler (1910-1988) celebrated by Sharon Gal
Alfred Marnau (1918-1999) celebrated by Christoph Szalay
