Friedrich Cerha is not only a composer, performer and conductor, but has also created extensive visual work, composed libretti and song lyrics, invented his own spoken language for his stage network and reflected on his works and general questions of cultural life in numerous writings. His artistic works are permeated by an examination of various forms of artistic expression, such as the fine arts, literature and architecture on the one hand, and concepts and models of thought in the humanities and natural sciences on the other.

The first section of this volume contains articles by the lecturers at the symposium; the second section contains a laudation of the composer, two conversations with Friedrich Cerha, and an essay written by the artist himself. An extensive illustrated section shows exhibition views and photographs of selected works of art.

With contributions by Daniel Ender, Anne Fritzen, Hartmut Krones, Lukas Haselböck, Theresia Hauenfels, Friedrich Cerha.
