Join us for the opening of a new large-scale exhibition KAFKAesque which focused on the reflection of Franz Kafka's work and poetics in contemporary visual art.

The work of three dozen internationally renowned artists shows that Kafka's work, with its references to existential fears and personal anxieties, is highly relevant to our times. The aim of this exhibition is not to build new monuments repeating old clichés, but to reflect Kafka's work through the perspective of the contemporary world, which is at a point where the old no longer exists and the new has not yet been born.

The opening will include a performance by the Agon Orchestra.

Curators: Otto M. Urban, Leoš Válka, Michaela Šilpochová

Exhibiting Artists: Josef Bolf, Brothers Quay, Pavel Büchler, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Mat Collishaw, Rowynn Michelle Dumont, Martin Gerboc, Douglas Gordon, Matouš Háša, Gottfried Helnwein, Siegfried Herz, Magdalena Jetelová, David Lynch, Volker März, Stefan Milkov, Jan van Oost, O.E.U., Wolfgang Pavlik, Viktor Pivovarov, Nil & Karin Romano, Jaroslav Róna, Nicola Samori, Marek Schovánek, Jakub Špaňhel, Jan Švankmajer, Johan Tahon, Mark Ther, Alexander Tinei, Maciej Toporowicz and Liu Xia
