Educational programme from the permanent offer of ROLE (IN) ART for the exhibition KAFKAesque

role “artist”

What does it mean to “stick your neck out”? What role does courage and the ability to go your own way play in any kind of creation? The works of artists, writers, composers, and others often invite us into their own stories, and authenticity is valued, whether it conveys beauty, joy, or despair. The reaction may be immediate, or it may take time, but the original creator is always sticking their neck out.

The exhibition KAFKAesque focuses on the reflection of Kafka’s work and poetics in contemporary art. It does not offer a historical view of his work, but a view that reflects our contemporary situation with all its complexities and ambiguities. The work of more than thirty internationally renowned artists shows that Kafka’s work, with its references to existential fears and personal anxieties, is highly relevant to our times. And it inspires pupils and students to express themselves in an authentic way.

The educational programme includes various activities, commentaries, discussions, and contemplation in the exhibition – all with a final reflection.
