steirischer herbst ’82

Director
Program Directorate

After Peter Vujica was appointed as the first artistic director of steirischer herbst in January, the festival of 1982 took place under the direction of the Program Directorate for the last time. Apart from the premiere of Wolfgang Bauer’s play Batyscaphe 17‒26 oder Die Hölle ist oben (Bathyscaphe 17–26, or Hell Is Above) at the Theater im Keller, the focus of this edition was on theater from Latin America, including the German premiere of Augusto Boal’s Murro em Ponta de Faca (With the Fist into the Open Knife), as Mit der Faust ins offene Messer, at the Schauspielhaus.

musikprotokoll and the Music Symposium were dedicated to a Personale (solo presentation) of the Austrian-British composer and musicologist Egon Wellesz, while the Literature Symposium focused on contemporary literature from North America and the Steirische Akademie (Styrian Academy) examined the question of God.

In the area of contemporary art, the focus was on quite different regions and topics: the Kulturhaus presented Junge Fotografen aus der Steiermark (Young Photographers from Styria), the Neue Galerie Schweizer Kunst ’70‒’80 (Swiss Art), and the Künstlerhaus works from the Ulbricht Collection. Among the fifty-six predominantly German artists, there were only two women.
