We mourn

It is with great sadness that we announce that Floridus Kaiser, Commercial Director of the festival, passed away completely unexpectedly on Friday, 17 April. His commitment to social and ecological issues left its mark on both the steirischer herbst team and its programme in the far too short time that we worked together. His death leaves a huge gap – we will miss Floridus!

What's on

»Finally: On May 11 the documentary My Name is Janez Janša was released online – available free of charge and with subtitles in seven languages. This marks the completion of [FREE] Janez Janša – a series of online publishing events by the three Slovenian artists Janez Janša, Janez Janša and Janez Janša.
