About Konrad Bayer

  • Konrad Bayer (17 December 1932 – October 1964) was an Austrian writer and poet.
  • A member of the Wiener Gruppe, he combined apparently irreconcilable elements—violence, hermeticism, pessimism, ecstasy, banality—and influences (dadaism, surrealism, pataphysics, Wittgenstein, Stirner, Sade et al.)—into a bizarre linguistic solipsism which has held increasing fascination for German writers of the last few decades.
  • His most important works are the novels Der Kopf des Vitus Bering (The Head of Vitus Bering) and Der sechste Sinn (The Sixth Sense), published posthumously in 1965 and 1966, respectively.
  • Bayer committed suicide in October 1964 at the age of 32. Bernd Alois Zimmermann included his poetry in his Requiem fĂĽr einen jungen Dichter (Requiem for a Young Poet), completed in 1969.
