Ein virtuelles Tagebuch

Internet project




They are diarists and writers-in-residence, minute-takers and observers. They note, sketch, photograph. They formulate passing thoughts – topical today and stale tomorrow. They observe themselves and others, negotiate public and private affairs. They record and invent, think up stories and reflect on reality. They are always subjective. They work with familiar means and grapple with the conditions of the sober medium.

The result, by degrees, is a multidimensional, virtual diary, a note¬book and sketchbook, a demo tape. A map, a virtual card index. Casual jottings, left-overs. Sequels, new beginnings. The remains of the day.

This year again, five authors and artists will be keeping an online diary for steirischer herbst: the Swiss artist San Keller; the British performance duo Lone Twin, who appeared at steirischer herbst four years ago and are now returning with a unique piece for children; artist Peter Piller, who roams Graz and environs with his camera and whose photographs will also be published in a book, and Austrian author, film director and actress Kathrin Resetarits.

They started their notes in May already, constantly adding new notes and condensing them during the festival, when all five will be in Graz for one week each – thus creating a parallel pre-history and literary continuation of steirischer herbst.
