April 18, 2024 – February 16, 2025

The great poet Friederike Mayröcker (1924–2021) would have celebrated her hundredth birthday in 2024. She wanted to live to be 200 years old, so rich in possible experiences did the world seem to her. Her curiosity never waned, and she continued to work on her award-winning oeuvre, comprising over 100 books, until the very end. Her appearance fascinated people far beyond the inner circle of her readers. Her writing apartment, a universe of handwritten notes in the middle of the digital age, was legendary. Manuscripts, drawings and photographs, as well as film and audio documentaries are being shown here for the first time, enabling visitors to experience at close quarters the life and writing of this unique artist.
