The ITBG was founded on February 11th 1999 on the initiative of the Viennese Thomas Bernhard Private Foundation. The ITBG sees its primary function, however, as an international forum, promoting an exchange of initiatives and information.

The International Thomas-Bernhard-Society (ITBS) aims to provide an interested public, both at home and abroad, the opportunity of a more differentiated encounter with Bernhard as a person and as well as with his work. To this purpose the ITBS organizes symposiums, supports other activities and maintains contact with various state and privately funded cultural institutions. The ITBS cooperates with the Thomas Bernhard Archive.
