Did you know that it was Martin Kippenberger who designed the famous poster for the 1997 festival? Or that Samuel Beckett wrote only one commissioned piece in his life – for steirischer herbst? That three of Christoph Schlingensief’s works caused quite a stir in Graz and that, prior to this year’s project “Die Kinder der Toten”, Elfriede Jelinek was involved in the festival twelve times?

The herbst archive comprises more than 4,100 projects with more than 16,000 participants, including catalogues, programme booklets, video and audio material, posters, and text documents. Take a tour through 50 years of steirischer herbst with our expert archivist Martin Ladinig.
