Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

WIRZ, Mario
Mario Wirz was born in Marburg in 1956 and has worked as an author, a director and an actor. In 1988 he moved to Berlin to be a free-lance writer. His earlier works include several plays and collections of poems, including Und Traum zerzaust dein Haar. Nachtgedichte [1982; And Dreams Toussle Your Hair. Night Poems] and Ich rufe die Wölfe [poems, 1993; I Call the Wolves]. Wirz' autobiographically informed ficton and poetry have established him as a prominent participant in the German AIDS discourse. In this discourse his voice is one of lyrical calmness, although he has also collaborated with Rosa von Praunheim, who is known for a more aggressive stance.
