Graphic Novel Exhibition - K: KafKa in KomiKs

Exhibition preview

K: KAFKA in KomiKs, an exhibition for anyone curious to see what a cartoon version of Kafka’s works looks like, is on display at the Goethe-Institut London until Friday, December 19, 2014.

Curated by American comic and audio book author David Zane Mairowitz and Polish author and radio producer Małgorzata Zerwe, the exhibition is based on his three graphic novels on Kafka: Introducing Kafka, The Trial and The Castle.

In 1992, Mairowitz collaborated with American cult cartoonist Robert Crumb on the production of Introducing Kafka, which quickly became a classic. Together with French graphic artist Chantal Montpellier, the publication of The Trial followed in 2008.

Then, last year, he teamed up with Czech illustrator and musician Jaromír 99 for the adaptation of Kafka’s novel The Castle.

On Wednesday, December 10 at 7pm there will be a film screening of Das Schloss/The Castle. A film adaptation of Kafka’s absurdist masterpiece. Austria 1997. German with English subtitles. Director: Michael Haneke. With Ulrich Mühe, Susanne Lothar, Nikolaus Paryla. Tickets: £3, free for Goethe-Institut language students and library members, booking essential.

Admission to Exhibition: Free.
