They record and observe. They note, sketch, photograph. They formulate passing thoughts – topical today, perhaps stale tomorrow.
This year again, four authors are keeping a highly subjective online diary: Swedish theatre-maker Gunilla Heilborn, devotes her attention to remembering the banal things in life in “The Wonderful and the Ordinary”, Austrian writer Marie Gamillscheg, artist, author and performer Matthias Schamp from Bochum, and last but not least Veronica Kaup-Hasler, who accompanies her last steirischer herbst with personal insights and prospects. They published their first notes in May, and add to them continuously. When they are on site in Graz for one week during the festival, their note-taking is intensified – thus joining together to form a parallel pre-history and literary continuation of steirischer herbst.
