An Encounter: Lina Loos - A virtual reading by Bettina Rossbacher

  • 15 Oct 2020 — 5 Nov 2020

Join the acclaimed Austrian public speaker Bettina Rossbacher and meet extraordinary Lina Loos (1882–1950), actress and writer in fin de siécle Vienna.

By reading from Loos‘ autobiographic texts, revealing her sketches, anecdotes, insights and memories, Rossbacher creates a unique and insightful literary encounter with Lina Loos and her world.

First wife of Adolf Loos, confidante of Egon Friedell, closest friend of Franz Theodor Csokor, Peter Altenberg‘s hymnically adored one, muse and most beautiful woman in Vienna: Behind all these labels stands an actress, columnist and unconventional woman - Lina Loos (1882–1950) - who always insisted on following her own path - with wit, keen observation and a strong personal opinion.

In addition to her work at renowned theatres (Vienna, Berlin, New York...) Lina Loos not only wrote poems and plays but also published feuilletons in Viennese newspapers and magazines from 1904 regularly, for more than thirty years. A selection of these was first published in book form in 1947 ("Das Buch ohne Titel").

Tune into our first edition of the 3-part video series, portraying outstanding women in Austria, presented by the renowned speaker Bettina Rossbacher.
