- Venue Description:
Centre de Culrura Contemporania in Barcelona (CCCB) brought this creative exhibit to life. Having penned The Trial, Metamorphosis, and The Castle, Franz Kafka (1883-1924) is the apostle of the literature of paranoia. While Kafka never specifies exact settings within his stories, Prague's presence is powerful within many. The city has also made a lasting impression on the author himself. These ideas are highlighted in the museum's two sections, "Existential Space" and "Imaginary Topography." Featuring first editions of Kafka's works, letters, drawings, manuscripts, and audio-visual pieces, this museum allows you to explore Prague through Kafka.
