Savezni predsjednik Republike Austrije Alexander Van der Bellen donio je odluku o dodjeli "Zlatnog odlikovanja časti za zasluge u Republici Austriji" hrvatskom književniku Miri Gavranu.

Ovo visoko državno odličje našem književniku će biti uručeno 20. ožujka 2018.

Gavranova povezanost s austrijskim kulturnim prostorom je snažna i dugotrajna: u prosincu prošle godine Miro Gavran je u Beču dobio prestižnu međunarodnu Nagradu "€œDr. Alos Mock Europa-Preis" za afirmaciju europskih vrijednosti u svome književnom radu," kod uglednog bečkog izdavača SEIFERT VERLAG Miro Gavran je objavio četiri tvrdo ukoričena romana: Zaboravljeni sin, Judita, Krstitelj i Poncije Pilat. U Beču je u proteklih dvadesetak godina gostovalo dvanaest njegovih kazališnih predstava. Godine 2007. Institut za kazališne studije Sveučilišta u Beču i  njemačka izdavačka kuća Anton Hiersemann iz Stuttgarta objavili su knjigu s izborom ponajboljih svjetskih dramatičara u koji su uvrstili čak tri drame Mire Gavrana a riječ je o dramama Noć bogova, Ljubavi Georgea Washingtona i Kreontova Antigona. I ne samo to, radnja njegovih drama Najduži dan Marije Terezije i Pacijent doktora Freuda događa se upravo u Beču, a u Austriji se djelomično odvija i radnja njegovih dvaju novijih romana Kafkin prijatelj i Nekoliko ptica i jedno nebo. Gavran je do sada imao i devet kazališnih premijera na njemačkom jeziku u Austriji i u Njemačkoj, a za rujan ove godine najavljena je još jedna Gavranova kazališna premijera u Beču.

Miro Gavran u svojim djelima nerijetko obrađuje univerzalne teme koje prelaze granice Hrvatske i šire ideju humanosti. Njegovi junaci, poput samog autora, imaju izrazito afirmativan odnos prema životu. Gavranova djela zastupaju vrijednosti tolerancije i ljudskosti na kojima se temelji zapadna civilizacija. Književni teoretičari i teatrolozi znali su primijetiti da se u njegovu stvaralaštvu prožima srednjeeuropski duh s tipičnim lokalnim hrvatskim motivima i mentalitetom.

Djela Mire Gavrana dosad su prevedena na 40 jezika te su izašla u više od 200 izdanja u zemlji i inozemstvu. Njegova dramska djela bila su predloškom za više od 300 kazališnih premijera diljem svijeta, a vidjelo ih je više od tri milijuna ljudi. Najizvođeniji je suvremeni hrvatski dramatičar u zemlji i inozemstvu.


Alexander Van der Bellen, President of Austria made a decision to award Miro Gavran with "Gold Merit Badge of the Republic of Austria".

It will be awarded on March 20th 2018.


Gavran's connection to Austrian cultural space is strong and longlived. He received international "Dr. Alois Mock Europa-Preis" award for affirmation of European values in his literary works in December in Vienna. Prominent publisher from Vienna - "Seifert Verlag" published four of his novels in hardcover: Forgotten Son, Judith, John the Baptist and Pontius Pilatus. Twelve of his plays visited Vienna in last twenty years. Three of his plays (The Night of the Gods, George Washington's Loves and Creon's Antigone) were selected for book of selection of the best worsk from world dramatists. This was published by the Institute for Theatrical Studies, University of Vienna and German publisher Anton Hiersemann in 2007. But that is not all, the plot of his plays Maria Theresa's Longest Day and Dr. Freud's Patient is set in Vienna, and the plot of his two novels Kafka's Friend and A Few Birds and One Sky is partly set in Austria. Gavran has had nine theatre premieres in German in Austria and Germany so far and there is one more premiere coming up in Vienna in Septermber.

In his works Miro Gavran often deals with universal themes that cross the borders of Croatia and promote the idea of humanity. His heroes, like the author himself, have a very affirmative attitude towards life. Gavran's works represent the values of tolerance and humanity on which the western civilization is based. Literary theorists and theatre experts sometimes notice that his artistic creation is permeated by a Central European spirit with typical Croatian local motifs and mindset.

Miro Gavran's work has been translated into 40 languages in more than 200 editions in Croatia and abroad. His dramas were templates for more than 300 theater premieres around the world which were seen by more than 3 million viewers. He is the most performed contemporary Croatian author in country and abroad.
