The exhibition The City of K. Franz Kafka and Prague differs from the majority of the numerous exhibitions focused on the theme of Kafka, which mostly aim at presenting relevant documents. By contrast, this exhibition has documents as its starting point and uses them to call up a metaphoric reflection of Kafka’s life and work. The exhibition consists of two parts. The first, called Existential Space, categorizes Kafka’s life events as well as the influence the environment in which he lived had on him. The second, called Imaginary Topography, shows the way in which Kafka’s work reflects the intricate process of transformation of the physical reality of Prague and Kafka’s life into a metaphoric image. The exhibition revives the photographs of people and places as well as manuscripts and books in the ingeniously planned installations which employ the most modern audio-visual technologies. Here, words, images, lights and music combine in a symphonic unity. The concept of the exhibition is described in a representative catalogue in three languages (Czech, German and English). Moreover, the second part contains eight essays by distinguished Kafka scholars.
