Dir Ficker, initiated by Franz West, is a resumption of the famous "Torch", by Ludwig von Ficker in Innsbruck's journal, etc. to whose circle Georg Trakl and Ludwig Wittgenstein belonged. The text and picture contributions of artists and writers and the interviews conducted by the Austrian poet Benedikt Ledebur with them revolve around the theory of language and philosophy of historical themes, reflecting the working methods of the participating artists and work on an aesthetic of modernity in the terminology of the collage. In the tradition of the "burner", but also the Dadaists and the Vienna group.
