Richard Wagner, born on April 10, 1952 in Lowrin (Banat) in Romania, and died in Berlin in 2023. He lived as a writer and journalist in Berlin since 1987. Today, he is one of the best-known voices of German and especially Romanian-German literature. His extensive estate, which has been kept at the IKGS since 2011, is one of the most important collections of the institute's archive and contains literary, journalistic and essayistic works, correspondence, manuscripts, versions of works, research material, personal notes, photographs, life documents and other materials relevant to research. Since May 2015, the estate has been catalogued and organized according to scholarly and archival criteria as part of a two-year project. It has now been generally accessible since October 2017. The recording of the document holdings were integrated into the Kalliope database, which serves as a central search entry point for estates and autographs. The project „Sicherung des Vorlasses von Richard Wagner“ based at the University of Augsburg, was funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM) and carried out in cooperation with the IKGS.
