Thomas Bernhard remixed II - The artist and his audience by Sigrun Höllrigl.
The writer and media artist Sigrun Höllrigl broadened Thomas Bernhard`s emotional and raging harangues against the public with a theory background: the art theory of Wassily Kandinsky and personal experiences about art berserkers like Thomas Bernhard.
Thomas Bernhard remixed I - Frostgehen (Alptraumlandschaft)
The writer Anne Sophie Reyer follows in her work „Frostgehen (Alptraumlandschaft)“ the person of the painter Strauch in „Frost“ in which the poetess recognises an alter ego of Thomas Bernhard himself. The search of traces happens by a inner monologue if a woman, which is interwoven by Frost citations. By polyphony, rythmic changes and collage technics the most relevant subjects of the poetess' perspective were shown and and examined regarding subjective and post-feministic ideas. „Walking“ becomes an attempt to safe and the surpressed mother hate of the painter culminates in the saying: „The women is the artifact of the devil“.
Thomas Bernhard Remixed III Ausgehen - by Barbi Markovic
The young Serbian writer Barbi Markovic did a remix of Thomas Bernhard novel "Gehen (1971) and transferred the subject of Bernhards novel - turning mad in Vienna - into the clubbing scenery of Belgrad and into getting stupid in the nightlife of post war-Belgrad.
