Rebel, global citizen and storyteller extraordinaire: the exhibition by the Literaturhaus München presents the Bavarian poet Oskar Maria Graf (1894–1967) as an international, cosmopolitan and yet rebellious author. The exhibition focuses on his time in exile and the question of what constitutes the "true home". From 1933 to 1938, Graf lived in Vienna and Brno before emigrating to New York, whose diversity and vitality he loved.
As an author of global literary repute, he wrote his most famous works while in exile – texts of great relevance in today’s global political climate and well worth re-discovering (Photo: Oskar Maria Graf in Berg, 1964, fotografie: stefan moses / Münchner Stadtmuseum, Sammlung Fotografie, Archiv Moses)
