Arne Rautenberg (born 1967, Germany) studied Art History and Literature and lives in Kiel,
where he works as an author and artist. In his works, which are full of humour,
he experiments with rhythms and styles, intonations and levels of language
in poetic play with the forms of perception.
Rautenberg published his first collection of poetry, "Neondaemmerlicht" (Neon Twilight)
in 1996. His literary oeuvre covers not only poetry but also experimental texts
and his novel "Der Sperrmuellkoenig" (The Trash King) (2002).
Since 2006 he has also been teaching at the Muthesius School of Art in Kiel
and he is a freelance critic and feature writer. Rautenberg's many awards
include the Poetry Prize of the Graz Academy (2001) and the Random House Prize
for Satirical Literature (2002). The latest collections of poetry are:
"gebrochene naturen" (Broken Nature, 2009) and "der wind laesst tausend huetchen fliegen"
(The Wind Makes Fly a Thousand Hats, 2010) - a collection of poetry for children.
