IN MEMORIAM GERHARD KOFLER
CHRISTINE HAIDEGGER & BARBARA HUNDEGGER
VERSUCH ÜBER DIE STILLE

Gerhard Kofler studierte in Salzburg und veröffentlichte hier erste Texte in der Literaturzeitschrift „Projekt–IL“. Er blieb dieser Stadt und den hier wohnenden Kolleginnen und Kollegen immer verbunden. Christine Haidegger liest Italienisch und Deutsch aus seinen – auch international – vielfach ausgezeichneten Gedichten, ein kurzes Video zeigt den zu früh verstorbenen Dichter bei einer Lesung.

Barbara Hundegger: „die größte rolle bei mir spielt die stille beim schreiben. – für lyrik ist sie schlicht unverzichtbar, weil jedes gute, gelungene gedicht den im text nicht mitverbalisierten raum um sich herum präsent macht und in dem, was gesagt wird, das zugehörige ungesagte, also seine je spezifische stille sichtbar, hörbar, ruchbar macht. und deswegen meine verdichteten versuche über die stille.“
