Stefan Zweig. World Author: Travelling exhibition
Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) is even today one of the most widely read German-language authors. Numerous translations and adaptations from Europe to China attest to the enduring appeal of his works. The travelling exhibition shows Zweig as a not uncontroversial best-selling author, as an incessant traveller and as a citizen of the world with a pacifist mission. The characters and settings of his fiction also take us around the globe. The exhibition reveals the extraordinary history of Zweig's influence and his multifaceted literary oeuvre, which has lost none of its topicality to this day. Stefan Zweig's message for posterity is the utopia of a world in peace without borders.
The travelling exhibition is based on the » special exhibition of the same title, which was on display at the Literature Museum of the Austrian National Library in Vienna from June 2021 to September 2022. It will be shown in » Austrian representative offices and cultural forums worldwide over the next ten years. The » accompanying book to the exhibition has been published in the series "Profiles" by Zsolnay Verlag.
