Liechtenstein-born writer Daniel Batliner was born on June 23, 1988, in Vaduz and grew up in Eschen. He is member of the writer’s associations PEN Liechtenstein and IG Wort. He studied Philosophy and Political Science at the University of Lucerne. He wrote several plays (“Wodka Nicotschow”, “Einmal Oberland, bitte!”, “Schwarze Farbe auf Leinwand”). On many occasions he was on stage himself as a comedian, moderator or actor.

In addition to his theater work, Daniel Batliner is co-organizer of the Literatursalon, a platform for writers, since 2011. He received international recognition when his short story, A Malcontent’s Monologue, was published in the American anthology “Best European Fiction”. In November 2012, he was awarded with the „Prix Kujulie“, a prize for young artists in Liechtenstein.

In November 2013 he was invited to do a public reading of his work at the highly-esteemed Goethe Institut in Washington. Liechtenstein Ambassador H.E. Claudia Fritsche, who was in attendance, remarked that, “Daniel Batliner impresses with his capability for expressions, his honesty in creating characters and their environment, and his sensibility for perceiving emotions.“
